    Design Thinking Principles for Career Development Learning

    Dr. Susan Mate and Ms. Freda Zapalis

    Thu July 28/Fri July 29, 2022

    To Update Us!  International and Emerging Career Development Practices

    Our APCDA Guest Speakers will explore Design Thinking (DT) as a mindset, skill, and process (Wright & Wrigley, 2019). This will be done through an overview of how DT principles have been embedded in undergraduate and postgraduate career programs offered at a university in Melbourne.

    Through these examples, we answer the following questions:

    How can design principles be used to teach students about career development learning?

    How do we incorporate design thinking with other career development theoretical frameworks?

    This webinar topic will benefit career practitioners working with clients to explore careers and their decision-making through the use of 21st-century skills and character qualities such as resilience, creativity, and critical thinking (World Economic Forum, 2015).

    How Has Your Work Changed?

    Group Discussion
    Thu Aug 25/Fri Aug 26, 2022

    During the pandemic, many of us experienced changes in how we work.  Some of those changes were reversed in places where people are no longer worried about COVID.  Technology made a big jump forward, causing us to work differently and learn new skills.  For example, technology may now be used to do parts of your work that you formerly did by hand, or you may spend more time Zooming and less time driving to meetings.  As career practitioners, the changes for our clients impact us also.  Job seekers must be prepared for AI Interviews and robotic resume screening, for example.  Are jobs easy or hard to find in your area?  Which skills are the most in demand?  Are workers looking forward to “getting back to normal” or nervous about the changes? Has your area experienced the “Great Resignation”?  Have you noticed changes in the types of things your clients care most about?

    Because APCDA includes 22 member countries, hearing from our members and friends about the impact of these changes in their own country can give us some perspective on global changes.

    The Chaos Theory of Careers

    by Dr. Jim Bright

    We all know that careers can seem chaotic, but to really understand the Chaos Theory of Careers, we must turn to the world expert, Dr Jim Bright.  Dr Bright has developed a chaos and complexity-based theory that provides an account of the complexity of influences on career development, the nature of change and unplanned events, as well as the limiting factors and emerging patterns in individual careers. The CTC model is also being applied to leadership, creativity, and occupational stress, particularly through his Beyond Personal Mastery model.

    Students' Pursuit of STEM Careers

    How can a career professional identify students with potential for a STEM Career nearly a decade before they pursue it?

    By Vandana Chopra Gambhir

    Worldwide, students pursuing STEM-centric academic courses tend to leave and shift their focus on other subjects across various transition points. Recent evidence indicates that students who are misfit for STEM education have gone through depression and resorted to attempting and many a times committing suicide. Thus, it is essential to seek ways through which STEM pipeline can be developed which has a high probability to continue and thrive in STEM careers. Dr. Gambhir has built a psychological framework that helps career professionals to identify students with potential for having STEM career nearly a decade before they pursue it. The framework has been extensively used with school and university students and helped them in their pursuit of the STEM professions.

    The HEROIC Mindset:

    Navigating a Lifetime of Transitions

    Without a HEROIC mindset, the Smart Machine Age leaves workers nervously employed and worried about becoming invisible. HEROIC is an acronym for six behaviors which can help you and your clients to stay focused on what really matters.  Using this acronym with clients can help them to live more fulfilling lives.  Two highly effective interventions (www.youscience.com and the Who You Are Matters! personal discovery game) will also be explained.

    Peer Supervision for the Helping Professional

    By Dr. Timothy Hsi
    Recorded on January 27, 2021

    Traditionally, practitioners from the helping professions are required to receive clinical supervision form a senior practitioner/supervisor as part of their professional development.  However, as career practice in much of the Asia Pacific region is still in its early stages of development, there are currently very few qualified career supervisors within the community.  Until this changes, a highly effective alternative is for career practitioners to engage in peer supervision as part of their professional development.  This approach harnesses the power of social learning (Bandura, 1971) which proposes that new behaviors can be acquired by observing and emulating others.  Dr. Timothy Hsi will explain the process of peer supervision and the benefit for organizations.

    Dr. Timothy Hsi is the Founding President of the Career Development Association of Singapore (CDAS) and founder of Abundanz Consulting Pte Ltd.  He was instrumental in the development of a whole new generation of career practitioners in Singapore from 2015.  Dr. Tim currently teaches career counseling and psychotherapy at the Australian College of Applied Psychology and travels regularly across Asia, educating and training individuals to be career practitioners.

    Reimagining the Future of Career Services

    By Dr. Rich Feller
    Tuesday, Feb 23/Wednesday, Feb 24, 2021

    Farouk Dey suggested that career practitioners must limit focusing on talking 1-1 with individuals about their own interests, values, needs and goals, and instead focus on enabling clients to make audacious moves through immersive experiences and consequential connections.  Can services be scalable to reach the majority of clients/students being confronted by technological and social changes.  Can we help clients/students challenge the social access and hierarchical pyramid where only a few can reach their goal and serve each client/student equally.  Join APCDA’s US Representative Dr. Rich Feller to dive deeper into these ideas and envision a new future for career practitioners.

    By Tuna Dagli and Gulnur Ismayil

    Originally presented Nov 25, 2019

In this webinar, Gulnur and Tuna will present their innovative career interventions in their respective universities’ Career Development Centers. Gulnur will conduct a short throw-back into the history of Career Services and her University and reflect on advantages and disadvantages of best practices under the local context in the region.

    Systems Thinking, Systems Stories and Narrative Career Counselling

    By Mary McMahon

    Systems thinking permeates our everyday life. Applications of systems thinking can be found in computer systems and transport systems. Our career development occurs in the complex cultural and contextual systems of family, community, education, and work as well as in the geographic, socioeconomic, socio-political and historical contexts in which we live. To make sense of our experiences in these contexts we tell stories to ourselves and others. Career counsellors can harness systems thinking and storytelling to assist clients with their career concerns. This webinar will provide practical examples of systems thinking and its applications in career development. In particular, the application of systems thinking in storytelling and narrative career counselling will be considered and tips and strategies provided.

    Blending Psychological Type and the Ancient Wisdom of the I Ching to Form a Universal Career Assessment Model

    By Brian Schwartz 

    Psychological type has become one of the major underlying systems in career assessment worldwide. What is far less known is that Dr. Carl Jung was inspired to write Psychological Types (1921) after reading the Richard Wilhelm translation of the i Ching or Chinese Book of Changes. The oldest book in the world gave Dr. Jung the portal through which he then not only developed the basis for modern type theory but for his concepts of synchronicity, the collective unconscious, the “shadow” aspect of personality and the archetypes. Using the structure of the “bagua” or octagon from the i Ching, I have developed a framework for understanding the destiny (not fate) embedded in the 16 mindsets of type theory and their relationship to impassioned skills, values, career selection and intrinsic motivation.  Drawing from the Laws of Attraction or Opposites and of Cycles or Periodicity, the elegance of the i Ching’s depth about Man’s relationship to Nature is explored and applied to modern day work and life situations.

    Dealing with Trauma in Career Conversations

    By Dr. Lee Richmond
    Recorded January 24, 2022

    Trauma is a name that we give to experiences that cause us deep psychological pain. Individuals experience painful events differently depending on the age of the individual, the degree of resiliency one has, the intensity of the stressor, and whether it was a one-time event or reoccurring experience or series of happenings.  However, there are several general actions we can take. A traumatized person needs to feel safe. Both mindfulness exercises and somatic exercises can help to bring calm.  Somatic memory is neurological (deeply embedded). Rather than focusing on the past, the career practitioner should begin working with the now and what can be done in the now to ease the pain. This webinar is focused on helping clients work through individual traumatic events effecting a client’s career choices, and also on the traumatic effects of both natural disasters and those created by humans.

    Lee J. Richmond, PhD, Professor Emerita, Loyola University Maryland, is a licensed psychologist in the State of Maryland. Her books include co-editor of Connections Between Spirit and Work, co-author of Soulwork: How to Find the Work You Love: How to Love the Work You Have, and What Brings You to Life?: Awakening Women’s Spiritual Essence.

    Using Holland Typology to Quickly Assess Career Personality

    By Dr. Gary Gottfredson and Dr. ZiYoung Kang
    Recorded on March 7, 2022

    Many career professionals use the theory of personalities and work environments developed by the late John Holland in their work. We use it to teach clients one way to think about themselves in vocational terms and to identify career alternatives likely to be compatible with their interests and skills. Nevertheless, experienced practitioners often use only a part of this theory. For example, counselors often focus attention on vocational personality while giving little attention to clients’ history of work and educational environments. Using the Holland structure, we can help them not only to explore career possibilities but also to construct personal narratives These narratives help give meaning to the situations clients are experiencing or construct narratives that shape their future careers.

    Following a brief review of Holland’s theoretical formulations, the presenters will demonstrate a method for assessing persons through brief interviews about aspirations (or history) to arrive at classifications that exceed the validity of classification based on elaborate interest inventories – and which are quicker and less costly to use. Webinar participants will practice using the assessment technique, and then discuss the experience and get help from webinar leaders in coping with difficulties experienced.

    Two career professionals will lead the webinar.  Gary Gottfredson is professor emeritus at the University of Maryland and co-author of My Life with a Theory, John L. Holland's Autobiography and Theory of Careers. He has spent many years developing and validating psychometric tools to assess personality and work environments, often in collaboration with John Holland. A psychologist, he has published widely in counseling and psychological journals. ZiYoung Kang earned a Ph.D. in counselor education at Pennsylvania State University and is an ordained Won Buddhist minister. Her work on constructivist and social constructionist career counseling and on assessment using the Holland typology has been published in the Career Development Quarterly and the American Psychological Association Handbook of Career Intervention.

    Sustaining Career Development: Using the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

    Dr. Candy Ho
    Recorded June 1, 2022

    Inspired by the United Nations (UN) 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, a university career transition course introduced the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in its curriculum. A natural fit between career education and the UN SDGs was discovered as students pondered three big questions: 

    • What is the world that I want to live in? 
    • What do I see are the global problems or opportunities that need our attention? 
    • What are my talents and experiences that may help address these problems and, in turn, improve the condition of our world?

    Similarly, these questions can be – and ought to be – considered when developing programs and honing practices. Incorporating the SDGs, our work can inspire clients to assess their professional aspirations and how these aspirations can be grounded on a broader goal(s) that promotes a sustainable future for our local and global communities. This, in turn, further amplifies the impact of our work by ultimately helping clients realize their mission and purpose.

    Dr. Candy Ho, EdD CDP, is an educator and scholar specializing in teaching university transition courses; the latter explains why she weaves career development theories into all aspects of her life. In addition to educating the next generation of CDPs in Douglas College, she holds a dual appointment as the inaugural Assistant Professor, Integrative Career and Capstone Learning at the University of the Fraser Valley and as Faculty, Educational Studies at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. Prior to becoming a faculty member, Candy has also worked extensively in university student affairs in first-year experience and student transition, campus and residence life, career and volunteer services, co-operative education, and academic advising. Finally, Candy currently serves as Vice-Chair of CERIC. This Canadian charitable organization advances education and research in career counseling and career development to increase Canadians' economic and social well-being.

    Wired to Become: The Neuroscience of Purpose

    By Britt Andreatta

    Recorded September 25, 2019

    Purpose is the driving force that gives our lives meaning.  Humans are wired for purpose and in fact, recent discoveries in neuroscience offer a fascinating look into what motivates us to become our best selves. The ability to align purpose is what distinguishes the most effective leaders from the rest, and purpose is at the heart of engagement, productivity, and retention. It’s no wonder that organizations that know how to harness the power of purpose thrive and excel while their peers falter or fail.

    In this session, Dr. Britt Andreatta will share the latest research about the brain science of purpose and why it’s such a powerful force. You’ll learn how you can leverage purpose to create a better work environment, more engaged employees, more effective leaders, and a positive culture that attracts and retains top talent. You’ll leave with tips and strategies for weaving purpose into a wide range of learning and talent programs, all of which will contribute to your organization’s success.

    In this session, you will:

    • Learn the brain science of purpose and why it fuels human motivation around the world
    • Discover how purpose can enhance engagement, productivity, leadership and retention
    • Identify ways to intentionally leverage the power of purpose to increase your organization’s success
