A Counselor’s Guide to Career Assessment Instruments continues to be an exemplary resource for counselors, career development facilitators, school counselors, and other career development professionals working in college career centers, agencies, and schools. The 6th edition of this text maintains the key features of previous editions with reviews of instruments and chapters by leading experts in the field. The updated edition has over 70 reviews and now includes qualitative/alternative approaches to standardized assessments. Instruments are divided into categories to facilitate selection of appropriate instruments by counselors, career development professionals, assessment specialists, and counselor educators. Chapters cover topics such as multicultural considerations in career assessment, selecting a career assessment, and career assessment standards and competencies for practitioners. The book provides brief descriptions and information on over 300 additional instruments. A useful matrix provides a useful cross-reference to search for instruments based on the purpose of the instruments and the population best to use it. The only publication of its kind, the 6th edition of A Counselor’s Guide to Career Assessment Instruments provides the most organized, practical, and comprehensive guide to the effective selection and use of career assessment instruments.
