Handbook of Vocational Psychology identifies, reports, and evaluates significant developments in vocational psychology and career counseling, and in doing so provides both professional clinicians and students with an informed understanding of both the current state and continuing progress in the field. As in previous editions, the fourth edition links theory and research with the more applied aspects of this field: four sections cover, in order, the field's history, theory, research, and practical applications. Clinicians, students, and academics at all levels of experience will find that the Handbook of Vocational Psychology, 4th ed, paints an accurate picture of the realities of work and serves as a practical reference work for anyone interested in keeping up to date with the latest research and trends in vocational psychology.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Excellent! Each chapter in the Handbook of Vocational Psychology presents a good summary of the best thinking in vocational psychology today. The organization and breadth of coverage make it a must read for anyone doing research in vocational psychology and a valuable resource for professionals intent on being helpful to people dealing with the role of work in their lives."

-Tom Krieshok, PhD, professor of psychology and research in education, University of Kansas

"The fourth edition of the Handbook of Vocational Psychology is a comprehensive summation of the present status of vocational counseling, one that reveals that our practice and teaching is founded in a modern science of vocational behavior. Frank Parsons would marvel at the evolution of his 100-year-old idea."

-Donald G. Zytowski, professor emeritus, Iowa State University

"This edition of the Handbook of Vocational Psychology again features the work of outstanding vocational psychology researchers and authors. They offer the reader cogent surveys of past and present vocational theory, research, and practice in addition to expert analysis of the field's current and future directions. Especially notable are the innovative and integrative conceptualizations advanced. The editors have delivered an essential resource for academics, graduate students, and scientist-practitioners."

-Linda M. Subich, PhD, associate dean of undergraduate studies and professor of psychology, University of Akron

"This edition of the Handbook of Vocational Psychology marks the 30th anniversary since the publication, and like the first edition, this edition helps establish a scholarly foundation for the field. The chapters in this edition are transformative in light of the current challenges in the world of work. By integrating incisive reviews of the literature with emerging new perspectives, the authors have produced the conceptual frameworks, practices, and research agendas that will define the field for the next generation. This book is a landmark contribution for our field!"

-David L. Blustein, PhD, professor, department of counseling, developmental, and education psychology, Boston College

"The present edition, like its predecessors, is a seminal publication that continues to meet the aims of the first edition in representing state-of-the-art thinking in vocational psychology... The handbook is in fact a textbook, representing excellently as it does the discipline of vocational psychology, not only in terms of its history and present status but also in terms of its future direction... [The] handbook is a definitive textbook for all those who theorise, research and practise within the discipline of vocational psychology in the twenty-first century."

-Mark Watson, Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, South Africa, British Journal of Guidance & Counselling
