Add to your registration for $165 | Sunday, January 28, 2024 | 9:00 – 12:00 ET | Room 205

Did you know that career theories and models can be interesting and applied in creative and novel ways to strengthen practice for you and your clients? How do you use theories and models to guide practice? In this workshop, we will explore a selection of contemporary theories and models, help you make good decisions about which ones to select, and discuss strategies for enhancing theory-practice connections. Discover what we learned about integrating theory and practice from the authors of 43 chapters in Career Theories and Models at Work, through a sneak peek at the practice principles that we synthesized to guide practitioners in their current and future work contexts. Join us for an engaging discussion and reflection activities that will help you to apply career theories and models in practice in new ways! This workshop is based on Practice Principles: Career Theories and Models at Work, to be launched by CERIC at the Cannexus24 conference. This book is the follow-up companion guide to the highly successful Career Theories and Models at Work: Ideas for Practice. 

Through attending this workshop, participants will:

Enhance their knowledge about theory-practice connections

Learn strategies for selecting and applying career theories and models

Reflect about foundational principles to inform their current and future roles
