The assignment is in the body but there is an attachment to look at as well to help along the process
After reading this week’s assigned material, write a 4-5 page paper reviewing at least three of the career counseling theories highlighted in Chapters 2 and 3 of the Niles and Harris-Bowlsbey (2012) text. Conduct further research on each of the theories you select (see the research criteria section below for clarification on appropriate resources). You will need to utilize at least five sources in addition to the course textbook. Address the following:
- What are the key elements of each theory?
- Are the theories universal or would they be more effective with specific populations?
- What would you identify as the strengths and weaknesses of each?
- Apply one of the theories to your own career development.
- What role do you see this theory playing in assisting clients with their unique career needs?
