A chance meeting, a broken appointment, a spontaneous vacation trip are the kind of experiences that lead to unexpected life directions. This book encourages readers to prepare for the unexpected and to make the most of what life offers.

This book is designed to help practitioners in translating theory to practice in the delivery of career counseling and services. The theoretical focus of the book is the cognitive information processing (CIP) approach to career problem solving and decision-making developed and applied at Florida State University since 1971. The CIP approach is currently being used in numerous educational and employment settings in North America and Europe. This book is the culmination of 29 years of experience in delivering career resources and services and in training practitioners in various settings. It provides a framework for integrating a variety of other career theories, thus increasing the likelihood that practitioners can use the CIP approach in practice.

Career Development and Systems Theory: Connecting Theory and Practice offers practitioners, researchers and students a comprehensive introduction to, and overview of, career theory; introduces the Systems Theory Framework of career development; and demonstrates its considerable contemporary and innovative application to practice. A number of authors have identified the framework as one of a small number of significant innovations in the career development literature. The Systems Theory Framework of career development was developed to provide coherence to the career development field by providing a comprehensive conceptualisation of the many existing theories and concepts relevant to understanding career development. It is not designed to be a theory of career development; rather systems theory is introduced as the basis for an overarching, or metatheoretical, framework within which all concepts of career development, described in the plethora of career theories, can be usefully positioned and utilised in both theory and practice. It has been applied to the career development of children, adolescents and women. Since its first publication, the Systems Theory Framework has been the basis of numerous publications focusing on theoretical application and integration, practice and research, with a growing number of these by authors other than the framework developers. Its application across cultures also has been emphasised. The theoretical and practical unity of the Systems Theory Framework makes this book a worthy addition to the professional libraries of practitioners, researchers and students, new to, or experienced in, the field of career development.
