Are you a career counsellor or coach in need of a new skills set to help meet the challenges of supporting clients?

This book is for you. It is the first to combine the theory & practice of CBT with career counselling, presenting cognitive & behavioural approaches to help clients think & act more effectively in challenging situations in order to obtain their goals. Providing clear, practical strategies & a wealth of materials that can be used with clients in one-to-one or group settings, the book introduces:

- theory of cognitive & behavioural psychological approaches within the context of career counselling

- motivational techniques to help clients succeed at interview

- how to help clients make effective vocational/educational choices & excel in the workplace

- professional issues i.e., assessment tools, ethical issues, evaluation

- self-management, using CBT techniques on yourself.

This is essential reading for trainees studying for a careers guidance qualification, as well as CBT trainees wishing to go on to career counselling.

This would be a good book for those students we teach who deliver employaility and soft skills. There are some interesting points and is an easy read too.

The text is very well written and presented. It provides both interesting and realistic practical exercises and examples that can be incorporated into practice development. The theory that the text relates to is very sound and up to date. The sequence of the chapters is a very logical and allows gradual key developments in the reader. I particularly like the emphasis on the development of reflective practice.
