Kris’s Cannexus21 keynote with Tony Botelho:

For too long, the work of career helpers has focused on helping clients acquire information and then using it to make sound occupational choices. It is not that these strategies are wrong; it is just that for many clients, other issues often have to be addressed before such “cognitive” strategies will work.

Kris will continue to discuss how the traditional view on career helping and career counselling as a cognitive process has been dominating funders’ perspective on career services provision. And, he will address how service providers can recognize the powerful role of emotions in helping clients navigate increasingly complex and unique career challenges.

Join Kris to discuss strategies that career development practitioners can use to harness the power of perception and emotion in their everyday practice. He will respond to the questions he wasn’t able to get to during his keynote and provide time for further discussion.
