We’re Writing a Book on Career Development & Mental Health!
At long last, we have a partnership agreement with CERIC to write a book about the impact of career development on mental health! The book’s primary audience will be front-line career development practitioners in employment centres, schools, post-secondaries, and career counselling offices. It will be backed with enough research and evaluation information to make it also useful for supervisors/managers, researchers, policy-makers, and academics. Expect to see the book in the spring of 2020. We will soon be posting a description of the book on CERIC’s projects page: https://ceric.ca/projects/.
CERIC will publish the book as well as partially fund its development. Australia’s Career Education Association of Victoria (CEAV – www.ceav.vic.edu.au), the Life-Role Development Group Ltd. (www.life-role.com) and Simon Fraser University’s Faculty of Education are also contributing funds and in-kind resources. CEAV will also “Australianize” the book for distribution within Australia. Many thanks to Riz Ibrahim, Executive Director of CERIC, Bernadette Gigliotti, Executive Director of CEAV, and Kris Magnusson, Dean of Education at SFU, for making this happen.
For those of you who indicated your interest in following and/or contributing to our progress on the career development-mental health agenda, our apologies for the delay in communicating (special apologies to those who signed up over a year ago!). We have not been idle, but have also not been in a position to open a consistent line of communication with you.
In the next missive, we will provide an update of what we have done to date, why we would like to continue communicating with you, and possibly how you might become involved in the initiative. These communications will soon become a blog but will start out as emails manually sent your way.
If you have received this and did not want to, or do not want to be on this mailing list in the future, simply reply to this email indicating your wish to unsubscribe.
