    Recorded Professional Development Workshop

    Career Construction Counseling: A Case Conference

    Dr. Mark Savickas

    Recorded on Nov 17, 2022

    The best way to learn to practice career construction counseling practice is through case studies. In this workshop, we will study the Case of Michael. Participants will view his responses to the Career Construction Interview Questions and have a discussion after hearing each of the five questions. Then there will be 30-minutes for breakout groups to discuss the case and use the Counselor Form to write a life portrait for Michael. Then we will reassemble and discuss the life portraits and end with a closing 8-minute video of the client and I discussing the portrait.

    This 3-our Professional Development Institute is designed for those who are familiar with Career Construction Theory but need more practice to use it with confidence.

    Dr. Mark Savickas, Ph.D., is professor of Family and Community Medicine at the Northeast Ohio Medical University and Adjunct Professor of Counselor Education at Kent State University. His articles, book chapters, and presentations to professional groups have dealt with vocational behavior and career counseling.  He has received the John L. Holland Award for Outstanding Achievement in Career and Personality Research (1994), the Leona Tyler Award (2011) from the Counseling Psychology Division of the American Psychological Association, and the Eminent Career Award (1996) from the National Career Development Association (NCDA). He is a fellow of NCDA, the American Counseling Association, American Psychological Association, the American Psychological Society, and the National Career Development Association.

    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.

    Thinking Soft Skills for Workforce. Think Critical Core Skills.

    By Corrine Peng and Hannah Lennon
    Recorded on September 24, 2020

    The adoption of technology, automation and digitalization over the years have led to the transformation at work and in living. The current COVID-19 crisis has accelerated these changes, impacting the lives of billions around the world. In the past, individuals and employers have assigned lower priority to soft skills while emphasizing technical skills acquisition for employment and careers. The crisis provides a timely reminder on the importance of building soft skills that would allow individuals to stay resilient, agile and connected in the increasingly digitalized world.  What can our career practitioners do to change the mindset of individuals related to soft skills, to encourage them to develop these skills and apply them to serve their lifelong career-learning development? A set of 16 Critical Core Skills for the Singapore workforce identified in consultation with industries will be introduced.

    Corrine Peng, a Jobs-Skills Analyst at SkillsFuture Singapore, collaborates with internal and external stakeholders to develop and derive jobs-skills insights and skills trends relating to evolving sector landscape and end users’ needs. She also engages with other teams of the organization to participate in jobs-skills analysis and proof-of-concept (POC) projects. With an extensive background and experience in capability and professional development, Corrine has contributed immensely to the development of Skills Frameworks and Critical Core Skills.

    Hannah Lennon, a Project Manager for Mercer’s Talent Consulting Business in Singapore, is a Project Manager for the SkillsFuture Framework Implementation in various industries in Singapore.  Ms. Lennon specializes in understanding how the future of work impacts jobs and skills and is passionate about enabling organizations to create meaningful employee experiences.  She gained valuable industry and cultural insights working with clients across multiple sectors, notably Financial Services, Education, Manufacturing, and Fast-moving Consumer Goods, both in the United Kingdom and Singapore.  Ms Lennon earned a Bachelor of Arts in History from University College London in 2015.
