Recording of the Community Interaction theory and careers counselling: Exploring who is influencing your clients thinking run on the 15th March 2016 by Calum Leckie.
Have you ever…
• Had a client who says they want a particular career which doesn't seem to match their interests and personality
• Felt that a client would not carry out agreed actions even though they clearly stated it would benefit them personally
• Had to manage a student struggling with their degree but who insists they need to find a role or research position directly related to the subject.
• As careers professionals, you need to be aware of the significant 'others' who may be influencing your client's career aspirations and decision making. This seminar will introduce you to various tools and guidance techniques that arise from important theories in careers that address this issue, most importantly Community Interaction Theory.
You will need to bring…
• Your reflections on who was involved in key decisions in your own career history such a degree.
• Examples of clients who you felt were being unduly influenced by family, friends or other significant people in their lives.
• A willingness to accept the fact that as a consultant you are often only one voice among many and that you may need to compromise in terms of what you can get the client to do.
• A willingness to apply theory and tools to presented case studies and discuss your approaches with others.
