Description

After completing a Career Construction Interview and before beginning counseling with clients, practitioners must understand the meaning presented in clients' stories, relate this meaning to the initial reason they sought counseling, and prepare to retell clients' stories in a manner that draws a sharp character sketch, highlights the career theme, and envisions scenarios that extend the occupational plot. If more than one session is possible, then the tasks of interviewing and counseling may be divided. Typically, practitioners spend the first session eliciting clients' career constructions with the Career Construction Interview, the second session narrating to the client a reconstructed story and beginning to coconstruct a reconceptualized identity narrative, and the third and final session completing counseling and terminating the consultation. This chapter presents the assessment goals that concentrate on extracting client preoccupations and problems from the early recollections that sustain them.
