About The Event
Gain a solid understanding of Career Construction Theory and learn how to conduct the Career Construction Interview with confidence. This Masterclass, taught by Dr. Kevin Glavin, CEO & Founder of Create Your Why, will teach you the theory and constructs of Career Construction, and help you practice your CCI skills by way of live supervised practice sessions.
A global pandemic and a world now commonly described as VUCA: Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous (Bennett & Lemoine, 2014) have ushered in a new world of work. Workers are having to adapt to a paradigm shift where “The future is not what it used to be” (Berra, 1998). Traditional Career theories, while necessary, are not sufficient enough to address the complex and diverse career concerns workers now face.
In an attempt to address these issues, Professor Mark Savickas created Life Designing for Career Construction (Savickas, 2011). In Life-Designing we use narrative career interventions to engage individuals in Life Designing Dialogs.
These dialogs help shape or re-shape the person through a continual process of meaning making. Clients learn how to address and cope with complex career concerns, challenges, and transitions by re-authoring their story. The cross-cultural nature of storytelling allows career counselors to apply LDCC across a diverse array of clients and client concerns. While LDCC is the new paradigm of thought for career development practitioners in the 21st century, we use Career Construction Theory and the Career Construction Interview to conceptualize a client’s current concern and move from theory to practice.
Career Construction Theory (CCT) is a comprehensive theory of vocational choice and adjustment that addresses the What, How, and Why of a career decision. It provides a means of integrating three viewpoints of vocational behavior:
- What: The psychology of individual differences
- How: The psychology of development
- Why: Narrative psychology
The Career Construction Interview (CCI) operationalizes CCT. It provides practitioners with a means by which to move from theory to practice. The CCI is a structured interview during which career practitioners inquire about five topics that uncover life themes and inform decision making about a client’s current transition or challenge. The topics address role models; magazines, television programs, or websites; favorite story; favorite saying; and early recollections.
Practitioners can use the CCI to help clients explore and identify their career related needs, values, interests, beliefs, and aspirations. Upon completing the CCI clients are better able to understand who they are, where they have been, and where they are going. This provides clients with a greater sense of Clarity, Control, Direction, Confidence, & Purpose.
