The Psychology of Working: A New Perspective for Career Development, Counseling, and Public Policy

Front Cover
Routledge, Jan 11, 2013 - Psychology - 380 pages

In this original and major new work, David Blustein places working at the same level of attention for social and behavioral scientists and psychotherapists as other major life concerns, such as intimate relationships, physical and mental health, and socio-economic inequities.

He also provides readers with an expanded conceptual framework within which to think about working in human development and human experience.

As a result, this creative new synthesis enriches the discourse on working across the broad spectrum of psychology's concerns and agendas, and especially for those readers in career development, counseling, and policy-related fields.

This textbook is ideal for use in graduate courses on counseling and work or vocational counseling.
