Due to the increasing demand for career guidance in recent years, career counsellors have been challenged to modernise their practice. As a response to the rapidly changing world of work, with more diverse client groups and more complex and challenging issues facing career counsellors, the field has moved strongly towards the greater adoption of constructivist approaches. The 2nd edition of this ground breaking book is a forward-looking guide, giving further insight into the constructivist approach for the 21st century by: providing a theoretical background to constructivism; alerting readers to a range of cultural considerations related to constructivist career counselling; outlining a range of constructivist approaches to career counselling; providing examples of practical applications of the constructivist approaches presented in the book; and assisting career counsellor educators, practitioners and students understand and implement constructivist approaches into their work. With contributions from an internationally recognised panel of authors from ten different countries, Career Counselling: Constructivist Approaches treats career as a holistic concept in which work and personal life are inseparably intertwined, and individuals as experts in their own lives and in actively constructing their careers. Structured into four logical sections, this 2nd edition attests to the ongoing influence of constructivism internationally and the continued development and refinement of constructivist approaches to career counselling. Career Counselling: Constructivist Approaches is essential reading for career counsellor educators, practitioners, researchers and students who want a refreshing insight into constructivist career counselling.

The average 21st-century career is one of constant change: an individual can no longer expect to remain with one organisation his or her entire life, achieving managerial status through natural progression. Today's job market requires constant re-training and adjustment because of skills obsolescence, age discrimination and technological illiteracy. On the other hand, younger or less qualified workers find it difficult to enter the labour market because of a lack of skills or experience. Career counsellors should be able to help clients to navigate this difficult and changing role. The book offers a practical framework within which the career counsellor can work. The text explains the role of the career counsellor within the organisation; discusses the key concepts that influence career behaviour; explains the use of counselling and guidance tools and techniques; offers insight into the profession and practice of career counselling; and provides guidance within an international and a South African context. Integrating theoretical and practical perspectives, this book offers a comprehensive overview of career counselling and guidance services, practices, tools and techniques in an organisational context. It consists of five chapters, each of which has a summary, key terms and review an discussion questions.

The Systems Theory Framework was developed to produce a metatheoretical framework through which the contribution of all theories to our understanding of career behaviour could be recognised. In addition it emphasises the individual as the site for the integration of theory and practice. Its utility has become more broadly acknowledged through its application to a range of cultural groups and settings, qualitative assessment processes, career counselling, and multicultural career counselling. For these reasons, the STF is a very valuable addition to the field of career theory. In viewing the field of career theory as a system, open to changes and developments from within itself and through constantly interrelating with other systems, the STF and this book is adding to the pattern of knowledge and relationships within the career field. The contents of this book will be integrated within the field as representative of a shift in understanding existing relationships within and between theories. In the same way, each reader will integrate the contents of the book within their existing views about the current state of career theory and within their current theory-practice relationship. This book should be required reading for anyone involved in career theory. It is also highly suitable as a text for an advanced career counselling or theory course. The first edition of this book appeared under the title Career Development and Systems Theory: A New Relationship. Reviewers' comments on the first edition: ."a thought provoking addition to career development literature." Canadian Journal of Counselling ."a landmark in the field of career development." Australian Journal of Career Development ."it is written in an admirable clear and concise style." British Journal of Guidance and Counseling

In response to the complexities of social change that have become evident in the 21st century, there is a need for innovation in career theory that takes into account new perspectives and the fluctuating contexts of people’s lives. Contemporary Theories of Career Development: International Perspectives brings together the contributions of theorists from around the globe whose work represents current, cutting-edge international approaches to career development theory.

Detailed, with reader-friendly descriptions and supplemented by international research, case examples, and discussion questions, Contemporary Theories of Career Development: International Perspectives is the ideal reference work for students studying the topic as well as a stimulus for researchers and practitioners looking to implement the theories in their work.
