Application of the Principles: Career Counseling and Interventions
Whiston, Susan C.
Counseling Psychologist, v30 n2 p218-237 2002
This article is designed to apply the Principles of Empirically Supported Interventions to the research related to career counseling and interventions. Although there is empirical support for career interventions in general, there is significant variation in effectiveness among different treatment approaches. The most effective interventions are individual career counseling and career classes, whereas workshops/structured groups and career classes are the most efficient method of providing services to the largest number of clients. Although the findings are somewhat tentative, there is preliminary support for the inclusion of five critical ingredients in all types of career interventions. Additional research, however, is needed to identify which clients benefit from which interventions under what circumstances.
