"The International Handbook of Career Guidance is the first international reference of its type on career guidance. This handbook offers a comprehensive review of the field, covering not only the background of vocational guidance but also the key issues across career guidance policy, processes, practices and procedures. The range of contributions from more than 30 leading authorities in the field also offers valuable directions for future research. The Handbook covers subjects such as educational and vocational guidance in a social context; theoretical foundations; educational and vocational guidance in practice; specific target groups; testing and assessment; and evaluation. It draws upon a wide range of career guidance paradigms and theoretical perspectives from person-environment fit, through developmental, to narrative and constructivist as well as critical theory approaches. There is an emphasis on the applied aspects of guidance together with research methods and perspectives. The Handbook brings together original contributions from Asia, Africa, America, Australasia and Europe. TOC:From the contents

The International Handbook of Career Guidance represents a project of inter- tional professional cooperation. It is intended as a catalyst for reform and was designed to support the development of career guidance in the years to come. Working for over four years from Belgium and Australia we had the privilege to collaborate with over 50 colleagues throughout the world to produce this Handbook. In every instance we selected key researchers who have an established reputation in the field of career development. They agreed to be involved and we are grateful for their support in this major effort. In this handbook we have tried to bring together a collection that summarises the diverse aspects of career guidance. It is a synthesis of the domain of career and vo- tional guidance firstly for an international readership and secondly it is designed to act as a reference for academics, researchers and professionals in the expanding field of career development. For this reason the Handbook includes coverage of the ba- ground and history of guidance right through to poignant issues relating to careers in the modern world of work. Policy issues relating to the provision of careers services as well as professional issues relating to career education, career counselling, career assessment, program evaluation and research methodologies are covered.
