Practice and Research in Career Counseling and Development–2010 (Annual Review)
The incredible amount of reading, organizing, synthesizing, and integrating involved in an annual review is difficult to imagine before the fact and even more challenging to adequately explain after completion. The time and effort spent completing this review was greatly rewarded by the quality of the articles I read and by all I learned from the 2010 research literature in career counseling and development. For this review, I chose, as have previous annual review authors of The Career Development Quarterly (CDQ), to focus on the four primary U.S.-based career journals: CDQ the Journal of Career Assessment, the Journal of Career Development, and the Journal of Vocational Behavior. I identified all articles that seemed relevant in the tables of contents for many of the American Counseling Association (ACA) division journals (i.e., Adultspan, Journal of College Counseling, Journal of Counseling & Development, Journal of Employment Counseling [JEC], Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, Measurement and Evaluation in Counseling and Development, Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, and Professional School Counseling), for the American Psychological Association (APA) journals most likely to contain research articles in the career field (i.e., Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Counseling Psychology, and The Counseling Psychologist), and for several international journals (i.e., Australian Journal of Career Development, British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, and International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance).
