During Career Transitions Lifecareer Theory (Miller-Tiedeman)

Listen to narration of client's life and view their life as their career
Help clients respect their lives and process their decisions
Help clients listen to themselves and appreciate their intelligence and experience by using their intuition
Encourage client to not dwell in past or speculate on the future-stay in the present
Help client not be afraid of change Spiritual Approach to Counseling
Adults in Career Transition Remember to view each client as
an individual: how you personally handled a similar crisis or transition may be
completely different based on what stage
of life you were in at the time, and what life
roles were valued by you at the time. If you, the counselor, are
in transition or crisis,
it is wise to seek
counseling to be able to
help your clients to
the best of your ability Other Spiritual Theories

Winner and Sweeney's Holistic Model of Wellness
-each person has five basic life tasks: spirituality, self-regulation, work, friendship, and love.

Brewer's Vocational Souljourn Model
-a person's life is guided by three basic principles: meaning, being, and doing. Stability in life=equilibrium among the three.

Bloch's Model of Spirituality and Career Counseling
-help clients deal with change, find their calling and a career congruent with values and sense of self. Disclaimer: clients may not be spiritual or religious and spiritual factors may play no part in their decision-making. Others may spiritual or religious and choose not to integrate those factors into their careers. Barclay, S., Stultz, K.B., & Chung, Y. B.(2011).
