Career Transitions in Turbulent Times: Exploring Work, Learning and Careers.
Feller, Rich, Ed.; Walz, Garry R., Ed.
A collection of 47 articles, this monograph addresses critical needs and promising practices in career development. The articles, written both by leaders and new comers in career development, offer extensive scholarship and new perspectives. The volume is divided into six sections: (1) Foundations Revisited; (2) Turbulence in Career Development: What Changes are Occurring in Career Development and Why?; (3) How Career Development is Responding to Different Client Populations; (4) Innovative Tools and Techniques That Maximize the Effectiveness of Career Development Interventions; (5) A Look to the Future of Career Development Programs and Practices; and (6) A Summing Up and a Leap to the Future. The span and depth of the essays portray the wide range of career transitions and the growing impermanence of careers themselves. Such transitions are viewed as a natural evolution and numerous strategies for changing jobs and for career development are provided here. Such disparate topics as transcultural career counseling, education reform, career needs of individuals with disabilities, personality disorders, global relocation, career development groups, ethics in career counseling, and a look to the future are covered. Each article furnishes a short bibliography while an appendix offers special resources available related to career development. (RJM)
