Abstract

This second edition of the International Handbook of Career Guidance presents the outcomes of an international collaborative project. It is intended as a catalyst for reform and was designed to support the development of career guidance in the years to come. In the course of three years, we editors had the privilege to work with over 100 colleagues throughout the world to produce this Handbook. Gathering a collection of papers reflecting diverse aspects of career guidance, it provides an overview of the career and vocational guidance domain for an international readership, while also offering an essential reference guide for researchers and professionals in the expanding field of career development. Accordingly, the Handbook includes coverage of the background and history of guidance, as well as highly topical issues concerning the psychology of working, career as calling, constructivism and careers in the modern world of work. Policy issues relating to the provision of career services, as well as professional issues in connection with career education, career counselling, career assessment, program evaluation and research methodologies are also addressed.
