Offers a thorough introduction to the principles and concepts of career development and shows how theoretical ideas can be put into counselling practice.
"A wide-ranging review and a welcome affirmation of the importance of counselling in career guidance" - Professor Tony Watts, Director of the National Institute for Careers Education and Counselling
"By contextualising counselling in careers guidance historically within its theoretical and institutional settings, both in Britain and elsewhere, Migel Jayasinghe allows us to recognise its significance for society as well as for the individual" - Audrey Collin, Professor of Career Studies, De Montfort University
"At last, we have a text which deals - head on - with issues at the heart of careers policy and practice... Jayasinghe traces and discusses the ambivalence, resistance, often blatant hostility to the self-evident truth that a counselling approach to careers practice is crucial to ensure positive outcomes for clients" - Jenny Bimrose, Head of Centre for Training in Careers Guidance, University of East London
