Society for Vocational Psychology: Integrating Theory, Research, and Practice

Each Society for Vocational Psychology (SVP) biennial conference has included a thematic element to provide a focus for presentations and discussions at the conference, as well as any publication that resulted from the conference. The theme of the 2016 SVP Biennial Conference, held at the Florida State University May 16-17, was “Integrating Theory, Research, and Practice in Vocational Psychology.” 

This book, and the conference plenary sessions, are based on the assumption that the science and practice of vocational psychology are more successful with the integration of theory, research, and practice. This book’s purpose is to examine the challenges and opportunities for integrating theory, research, and practice in vocational psychology from the perspectives of theorists, researchers, practitioners, and journal editors, with the hope that this knowledge will lead to improved science and career interventions.
