In this Application assignment, you will demonstrate strategies for facilitating client skill development for career, educational, and life-work planning and management.

To prepare for this assignment:

  • Review Chapter 8 of the course text, focusing on career      development planning.
  • Review Figler and Bolles’ list of 12 key      skills of the career counseling (p. 239-240).
  • Review the case study of Darren (Niles, Goodman, & Pope,      2002).
  • Think about how you would complete this vocational/career      development plan.
  • Consider other steps you might take or things you might add      to a vocational/career development plan for Darren.

The assignment: (1-2 pages)

  • Using the Hill and O’Brien (1999) Helping Skills Model Model      (embedded in the course resource “Darren – The Case of the Unemployed      Runaway”) describe the strategies/interventions that you would employ to      support a client’s life work plan.


    • Develop a client to use for this Application Assignment.       Consider using the client you developed for the Week 3 Application       Assignment; do NOT use “Darren” from the resources
    • Briefly describe your client’s presenting problem.
    • What activities would you engage in for Stage One?       (Exploration, pp. 231–232). What techniques would you use to develop       rapport, express empathy, and encourage your client to “tell his       story?”
    • For the second stage, Insight (p. 232). What areas would you       focus on to gain deeper meaning and understanding of your client’s       situation? How would you identify his strengths and weaknesses? What       interpretations would you offer your client?
    • During the action stage (p. 232), what plans would you       develop, how would you evaluate them, and what follow-up activity would       you do with your client?
    • Include anything else that you would like to add to further       develop the plan.
