2017 Career Construction Institute | Kent State University

The goal of the Career Construction Institute is to provide career counselors and academic advisors with opportunities to learn and practice Career Construction Counseling using life design dialogues. Day 1 consists of mini-lectures, demonstrations, and roundtable discussions of key practice guidelines and common misunderstandings.  Building on those experiences, Day 2 offers opportunities for participants to conduct their own interviews with feedback from experienced practitioners as well as observe live demonstrations. Day 3 provides participants with the opportunity to create an individual’s “Life Portrait” using information gathered from the Career Construction Interview. 

The Institute Faculty are leading experts in career construction counseling and have published numerous articles and chapters on Life Designing Dialogues. Reading and audio-visual materials will be distributed before, during, and after the Institute.
