Spencer (Skip) Niles: The Action-Oriented Hope Model of Career Development

Having a sense of hope is critical to positive career and educational planning. Without it, there is no reason to expect anyone to become actively engaged in the planning process. Hope, however, is necessary but insufficient for focused planning. There are macro-steps related to the career self-management process that drive effective planning. This webinar introduces participants to this model, provides interventions connected to each step, and offers a case study for applying the model with a career counseling client. Learn more here.
