Decision Time: A Guide to Career Enhancement
Author/Editor: Michael Shahnasarian, Ph.D.
"If your clients or students are unfulfilled in their work life, their dissatisfaction will most certainly affect other areas of their life: namely, self-esteem, relationships with those close to them, their lifestyle, and work performance." The book will provide insights into working with clients/students to help them realize their goals etc. Decision time presumes that readers can take control of their careers-even in a complex, unpredictable labor market-and realize their career goals with hard work, a well-planned and executed strategy, and ongoing career management. At the core of Decision Time, Dr. Shahnasarian employs a career decision-making model that emanates from Frank Parsons' pioneering work, refined over the years by the likes of Donald Super, John Holland, and John Krumboltz. Included are structured activities to help explore important work values, examine how interests translate to career options that may be unfamiliar, and examine strengths. Dr. Shahnasarian presents proven techniques to help cut through the red tape and secure accurate, up-to-date, and complete career information to evaluate career options effectively. Decision Time will both assist readers with immediate career decisions and facilitate their decision making throughout their career development. Career development professionals will recognize Dr. Shahnasarian's integration and melding of central theoretical bases-including trait-factor, developmental self-concept, personality, and behavioral. Use of Decision Time with added counsel from a trained career development professional can enhance the readers's experience.
