For students taking courses in career counseling.
Help future counselors develop an usable understanding of both theory and technique.
Foundations of Career Counseling: A Case-Based Approach is built around a series of case studies that contextualize and bring to life all aspect of career counseling from theories through assessment, intervention, and education. Designed for students taking courses in career counseling, this practical and engaging text places a strong emphasis on diversity and on passing along a clear and concrete grasp of how to do effective career counseling.
Balancing both theory and application, all of the chapters contain case material like transcripts, examples, and sample assessment results that illustrate Suzanne Dugger’s clear explanations of concepts. The text will help future counselors develop a thorough understanding of working with clients across the lifespan (from children through older adults). And the text also provides a good foundation for working with specific populations such as persons with disabilities, military veterans, ex-offenders, homemakers, and caretakers transitioning back into the world of work.
From Reviews of the Book:
“This is the best career counseling text I have seen to date. It thoroughly covers major theories but also includes models, process, employment law, and theory. . . . The writing style is quite good. It is easy to ready and interesting.”
—Janet Froeschle Hicks, Texas Tech University
“The strength of this material is that it [is] very comprehensive and well written. All of the key concepts and theories were well covered. . . . I really enjoyed the book and the detail was outstanding. . . . I would definitely adopt this work in my class.”
—Steven Jochim, University of Massachusetts, Boston

Foundations of Career Counseling: A Case-Based Approach is designed for students taking courses in career counseling. Additionally, a full chapter is dedicated to the career development of students seeking graduate degrees in counseling.
Develop understanding of both theory and technique using in-depth, engaging case studies.
Rather than simply describing career development theories, Foundations of Career Counseling: A Case-Based Approach uses seven realistic, diverse client scenarios to help students connect with the material and master career counseling content and skills. Balancing both theory and application, chapters about the career counseling process, intake interviews, and the use of tests, card sorts, and resources contain transcripts, examples, and sample assessment results from simulated sessions with these fictional clients. Suzanne Dugger's down-to-earth writing style clearly explains complex concepts in everyday language. Future counselors will develop a thorough understanding of both theory and technique pertaining to career development interventions with children and young adults as well as with adults-including specific populations such as persons with disabilities, military veterans, ex-offenders, homemakers and caretakers transitioning back into the world of work-and even themselves!
