Through detailed case material the authors show how to use counselling strategies with clients seeking careers guidance to enable them to change unhelpful patterns of thought and move towards achievable goals. The text offers a series of tasks for structuring interviews, assesses materials available to careers counsellors, and discusses important issues affecting their training and development within the public sector. It should be a useful handbook for experienced advisers and trainees in the careers service and a range of professional settings.
