  • Brain-Based Career Development Theory

  • Summary

    For most, the career development process is overwhelming due to the amount of information and future-based thinking that goes along with making life-altering decisions.

    Brain-based career development (BBCD) is based on cutting-edge neuropsychological research. Developed at Ohio University by Imants Jaunarajs, Jodi Pavol, and Erin Morgenstern, BBCD provides practitioners with a firm understanding and insight into the brain’s biological limits and the impact this has on the career development process.

    In this monograph, the authors delve into the epistemology of BBCD, the neuropsychological constructs, and a theoretical model, and provide case studies and resources. The monograph also addresses coaching the career coach in BBCD, and provides samples and forms.

    The monograph provides a strong foundation for anyone involved in career development, and is a key resource for those involved in career coaching or seeking career coaching certification.
