(Carousels) Plenary Table 13: The "Bright Spots" Strategy: From Haldane to Heath

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Career development clients benefit when we focus on the positive experiences in their work histories. This approach is associated with Haldane, and has lately found expression in the work of the Heath brothers and their advice to find the "bright spots." Our clients all have stories of positive work experiences to tell. Our job is to listen and learn.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Understand the benefit to clients of a "bright spots" approach;
  • Identify the positive psychology principles most relevant to career counselling;
  • Discover the history and lasting value of Bernard Haldane's ideas
