This webinar considers Core Competency 1: Career Development Theory of the revised Professional Standards for Australian Career Development Practitioners.
The competency requires that career development practitioners are able to describe major career theories, their research, their models and frameworks, and apply such knowledge to career practice.
The webinar considers what makes for good theory and what makes for good use of theory in practice.
While career development theories and career practice are reciprocally connected, there is persistent concern in the literature of a mismatch between the two. In addition, there is concern at the proliferation of career development theories as they attempt to address macrosystemic economic, political and social factors and the changing nature of the work world.
This quantification of theory requires qualitative choice and the webinar considers a number of traditional and contemporary choice criteria critical for career clients, career development practitioners and the career counselling context.
The webinar also explores the ethical, activist and innovative role that the career development practitioner could play in the use of career theory.
The webinar concludes with a focus on more contemporary career development theories that address cultural and contextual factors.
