Supporting clients with workplace success


  • Course Description

    This course is designed to provide therapists an overview about how to support their clients with developing critical tools and skills for workplace success, through the eyes of a career counselor.

According to Bloomberg News in Underemployment Is the New Unemployment, “Western countries are celebrating low joblessness, but much of the new work is precarious and part-time.” The traditional employment model is not longer relevant nor effective in today's work world, and this course will help therapists form a general understanding of how this phenomenon affects their clients and how to help them navigate these challenges.
