CERIC is offering a free webinar with Dr Norman Amundson and Tannis Goddard on Hope-Centred Career Interventions on June 5, 2017. The Hope-Centred Career Interventions project wrapped of earlier this year with a final report showing how deploying specific hope-centred career interventions can positively influence the actions of unemployed adult jobseekers with low hope and high barriers.
The primary goal of the project was to develop a range of counselling intervention methods and tools that can be used by a career practitioner when engaging a client in either face-to-face delivery or through online delivery. In the study, 70% of clients reported that after participating in the interventions they were able to develop new perspectives on job search, craft better career plans, and be more confident in their decision-making.
What you will learn in the webinar:
- Understanding the Hope-Centred Career Development Model – including the competencies related to increasing and developing hope
- Acquiring an overview of a field-based research study
- Learning about similarities and differences of face-to-face and online career development learning
- Being informed about “mattering” and how it contributes to client success
- Gaining introductory knowledge about the Hope-Centred Career Inventory
- Being introduced to intervention activities such as Walking the Problem, Career Flow, Circle of Strengths, Two and Three Chair Problem Solving, and Staying Afloat
