The Hope-Centred Career Interventions project led by Tannis Goddard (MixtMode), Dr Norman Amundson (University of British Columbia), Dr Spencer Niles (College of William and Mary) and Dr Hyung Joon Yoon (The George Washington University) was a follow up to a CERIC-funded exploratory project on the importance of Hope for career decision-making as assessed by the Hope-Centred Career Inventory (HCCI).

This research project was also funded by CERIC. The primary goal for the Hope-Centred Career Interventions project was to develop a range of counselling intervention methods and tools that can be used by a career practitioner when engaging a client in either face-to-face delivery or through online delivery. These counselling interventions were then used with unemployed jobseeking adults accessing public employment services in Canada. This research project focused on coming to a better understanding of the factors that influence hope and the impact differences between face-to-face and online delivery channels.

We recognize that this is a complex and challenging time. Practitioners and agencies have responded by radically changing the way services are provided to the many Clients needing support. 


Having studied, practiced, researched, trained and consulted on remote and online career development learning for over 15 years, our team is finding ways to share knowledge with the field.
