Action-oriented Hope-centered Career Development


In this webinar Prof. Spencer Niles presents an action oriented model of career development which places hope at the center of the process.  Niles highlights the three theories of career development which underpin this career development model - Snyder’s Hope Theory, Bandura’s Human Agency Theory and Hall’s Protean Career Theory.  The process employed by the action-oriented hope-centered model is discussed (self-reflection, self-clarity, visioning, goal setting and planning, and implementing and adapting) and sample activities are presented which can be employed to support the career development of individuals and groups. 

Niles concludes the webinar by presenting a case study and inviting guidance counsellors to consider how they might help Emily progress her career journey.
