From the Back Cover
Organized around the National Career Development Association’s competencies, this practical, engaging text examines the full spectrum of state-of-the-art career development topics. Coverage focuses squarely on the application of interventions with real people, using straightforward presentations and cases studies to expose students to all of the essential competencies required for the professional practice of career counseling. The authors’ respect for their field and their long-standing commitment to educating students about career development theory and practice creates a readable, useful, interesting text. It also addresses the wide diversity of career counseling clients and counselors in today’s society, while emphasizing that careers develop over time, rather than in a single “enlightened” moment.
With an increased emphasis on application and implications for practice, Career Development Interventions in the 21st Century now includes:
- Tips from the Field, which appear throughout the text and offer practical tips and guidelines.
- Diverse case studies, which show readers how the material can be applied in their work as professional counselors.
- Student Activities, which appear at the end of each chapter and give readers the opportunity to apply chapter content.

Regarding the comments about this being a loose leaf book, I noted that when purchasing the book. I tried using it in a three ring binder just using the top two rings. That wasn't particularly satisfactory. I took it to a print shop in town and had them spiral-bind the book. It took five minutes and cost $3.00. Now the book resembles those church-published cookbooks that were popular fund-raisers. It was a pretty good solution.
I ordered the student edition and the paper is very thin so it ripped easily.
The writing is ok, some chapters were clearer than others.
