The field of career counselling has undergone substantial change since its inception. It has evolved from a developmental, trait-and-factor focus to encompass a holistic, career/life path approach. A literature review examines adult developmental theory and career development and counselling theory that support a life-space, life-span career counselling approach based on an Adlerian perspective. Magnusson's (1992) Five Critical Career Counselling Processes model is used as a framework for the interventions presented in each phase of the career counselling process. A variety of non-traditional interventions are presented, while references are provided for a sampling of standardized tools and assessment instruments. Finally a list of relevant resources provides information to facilitate access to useful career counselling handbooks, articles, research, interventions, and websites.
