Integrative Career Counseling:
Keeping our Career Clients on Track When Mental Health Issues Emerge
Thursday, November 30, 2023
12 - 2 PM
Many clients seeking career counseling are also struggling with anxiety, depression or other mental illness. Ignoring a client’s mental health struggles isn’t productive or humane, but getting sidetracked by those mental health issues isn’t helpful, either. How can career professionals strike the right balance? The Integrative Career Counseling (ICC) framework provides a roadmap for navigating the mental health issues our career clients experience.
Participants will learn the four levels of the ICC framework, and then practice applying the framework to real-world client challenges.
