Career Development through Story Telling - The Career Construction Interview Assessment Tool
The Career Construction Interview (CCI), created by Dr. Mark Savickas, is a powerful qualitative career assessment tool that encourages clients to find their own meaning through the construction of their career stories, engage more fully in the career development process, and enter into a love for lifelong learning (Maree, 2013, Savickas, 2011). In this GCDA session, participants will be introduced to the CCI, experience the assessment personally, learn about how to interpret the assessment and create a life script, and have tools to further explore the utilization of this assessment into their own practices.
