This week, you will have the opportunity to participate in a live chat with a career counseling expert. This will give you a chance to learn and ask about current trends in the field of counseling, along with more specific information about helping clients who may present with career issues. If you are unable to participate in the call due to scheduling conflicts, you will have the opportunity to listen to a recording of the call.
To Prepare for this discussion:
· Participate in the call with a career expert (instructions for participation in the call will be provided in Course Announcements) or listen to the recording of the call.
· Consider the topics that the speaker addressed, and choose one topic that resonated with you as you consider the services you might provide in the future.
· From a broader perspective, consider several “takeaways” that are important for new counselors to consider as they prepare to offer career counseling services to clients.
With these thoughts in mind: Discussion Question a description of the one topic that was especially meaningful to you, along with why it was meaningful and how you will incorporate the information into your future practice. Additionally, describe what you think are the 3 main “takeaway” points from the session with the career expert.
