National Careers Week Webinars

The Senior Secondary Pathways Reform Taskforce is hosting webinars to celebrate the National Careers Week from 17 May to 23 May:

Bolstering Student Mental Health with Effective Career Development Practice (Two-part series)

In Part 1 of the series, Dave Redekopp and Michael Huston will describe the connections between career development and mental health as well as strategies for weaving mental health into career development interventions. Participants will leave with at least one strategy they can try before Part 2 of the series.

Part 2 will begin by debriefing the application of the between-session strategies. This will be followed by a review of additional strategies and skills practitioners can use to incorporate mental health aims in career development practice while maintaining their professional, ethical and role boundaries.

It is recommended that participants complete both parts in sequence.

A Better Story Toolkit: Words and Actions, Building Blocks for Life/Work

Gray Poehnell’s Hope-Filled Engagement approach supplements traditional, mainstream career approaches by addressing the increasing need for a diversity of tools and concepts that can be used with increasingly diverse populations. It has been effective in assisting people to find their strengths and the other assets that make them who they really are and what they are capable of.

A Better Story builds on this approach and helps people to craft a better inner story that can sustain them as they move forward on their life/career journeys. Gray will explore how to take small steps to identify, choose, and cultivate the “words” and “actions” that will enable us to do more than just survive or even succeed—but to thrive by living well.
