Reimagining Careers Education | Session 13
The intersection of Wellbeing and Career Development
REIMAGINING CAREERS EDUCATION | SESSION 13
We're reimagining how we do pretty much everything right now - careers education included. This series of virtual meet ups is for anyone involved with student futures particularly in a K-12 setting.
The purpose is to bring together a collective of folk who are passionate about making careers education as inspiring and powerful as it should be. Each week we have a different discussion focus and invite guest speakers to share their insights and ideas.
In this session the panel will be discussing the intersection of overlaps of wellbeing and career development. What's the opportunity here for K-12 schools?
We will be joined by Dave E. Redekopp and Michael Huston, authors of 'Strengthening Mental Health Through Effective Career Development: A Practitioner's Guide', available through Amazon.com.au or for a free pdf download, www.ceric.ca/cdmh.
