2021 APCDA Conference

Dr. Mark Savickas is perhaps the most creative thinker in our field today.  A long list of awards recognizes his profound contributions to our field.  During his early career, he researched the impact of each of the major theorists and assessments related to their theories (do people behave as predicted by the theory?).  After confronting the limitations of past theories through his very prolific research, he designed his own theory, based on a dramatically new premise and world view. 

Dr. Savickas has provided us with a step-by-step implementation guide to help us use this new way of thinking.  The guide is truly valuable because we can experience for ourselves the success of this new way of looking at our work, even before we fully grasp it.  But to really understand this new way of thinking, you need to hear Dr. Savickas explain his own theory. Through the magic of a virtual conference, we are delighted to bring you Dr. Savickas explaining his Career Construction Theory in his own words. Visit our 2021 Conference page for details.
