2017 Career Construction Institute Schedule

Career Construction Institute
July 25 – July 27, 2017
Kent State University, Kent OH

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.
