Description and learning outcomes:

For most individuals, the career development process is inherently overwhelming due to the shear amount of information and future-based thinking that goes along with making life altering decisions. This session will showcase the Brain-Based Career Development (BBCD) model, which is based on cutting edge neuropsychological research. This session is updated and includes new and more in-depth neuroscience research.

Following this program, you will be able to:

  • Understand the Brain-Based Career Development model;

  • Examine “decision making” and “taking action” from a brain-based perspective;

  • Examine how clients become overwhelmed; 

  • Practice the seven BBCD coaching techniques; and

  • Formulate a plan for how to implement the BBCD model in current career development practice.
