FREE!!! NewTraining: Narrative Approach to Career Development

Don’t miss our new training: Narrative Approach to Career Development! It’s part of the Career Development Training Series in the advanced track. The training will be held on 1/23/13 from 9:45am-4pm at UMDNJ’s Stratford campus. For more information or to sign up for this new training please go to our website.

 From the Trainer:

People in recovery pursuing their career goals confront many challenges, however, confronting challenges while pursuing career goals is not unique to people with psychiatric illness. How did you get to where you are today? Chances are it was a process, or as more recent career development theorists Drs. Cochran and Savickas contend, it is the story of your career!

This interactive training will teach providers how to help individuals they work with reframe their thinking about themselves in regard to their careers. Attendees will develop their own career narrative during this training, and be provided with tools to help people in recovery develop a career narrative that will be empowering and assist with choosing a career path.
