Did you know Roberta has been involved in three recent publications geared to support career development professionals and career counsellors?

Career Development for Diverse Clients: Beyond the Basics examines the unique challenges that individuals from a variety of populations may face as they move their careers forward while simultaneously challenging complex barriers to their employment and career success.

The textbook features 35 chapters, each written or revised by someone with specialized knowledge or lived experience in the area of diversity being examined. The opening section explores the work of career development professionals, the required reconceptualization of diversity and inclusion, and career engagement across diversity. Additional sections address challenges related to careers across the lifespan; gender; ethnicity and culture; geographic location; physical/ mental illness, injury, and well-being; life transitions; and language and literacy within the context of career development.

Dedicated chapters examine encore careers after retirement, supporting transgender folks in career transitions, the training of Indigenous employment counselors, disordered eating in the workplace, military-to-civilian career transitions, the multilingual workplace, and much more. Written to assist career development professionals in customizing their approach to serving clients across cultures, conditions, and contexts, this is a valuable resource for courses and programs in career development counselling.

Career Flow & Development: Hope in Action introduces students to Hope-Action Theory, a model that emphasizes the centrality of hope in identifying positive career possibilities grounded in self-clarity emerging from systematic self-reflection. The book highlights how students can apply self-clarity to create a personalized vision of a future professional or educational career.

Based on leading theories of human behavior and organizational management, the Hope-Action Theory provides students with a dynamic set of tools that support and encourage effective decision-making. Readers learn how to leverage hope, self-reflection, self-clarity, visioning, goal-setting, as well as planning, implementation, and adaptation strategies, to guide their careers.

The book challenges students to develop specific goals and plans, set those plans in motion, then utilize new experiences to inform their ongoing decision-making. The text provides stories, examples, case vignettes, activities, and assessments to reinforce the material. The Hope-Action Inventory helps student assess areas of opportunity and personal growth.

Career Flow and Development is an ideal resource for courses in career planning. It can also be used by career advisors working with students or within counseling programs to show future practitioners how to conduct career interventions.

Career Recovery: Creating Hopeful Careers in Difficult Times provides readers with powerful strategies they can use to create hope and manage their careers throughout their lifetimes. The book introduces readers to the hope-action theory, an empowering approach that highlights the connection between hope, academic engagement, student retention, job search success, career goal clarity, and cultivating a meaningful career path.

In Section I, the text introduces the essentials of hope-action theory. The chapters illuminate the challenges of effective career self-management in a post-pandemic world and the importance of hope in career planning. Section II examines the crucial process of engaging in self-reflection to develop self-clarity. Readers uncover their unique passions, skills, personal styles, and values. Section III highlights the need for support in career and educational planning. It teaches readers how to move from self-exploration to seeking support and fostering future opportunities. The final section focuses on implementing key decisions and transforming possibilities into realities.

Career Recovery is an energizing resource that helps readers discover and channel hope to support the development and management of their chosen career paths.
