Erik Erikson observed “The richest and fullest lives attempt to achieve an inner balance between three realms: work, love and play, “ yet a recent Gallup poll found that 63% of the people surveyed were unhappy or discouraged about their work suggesting few are achieving this balance. Psychologists regularly observe the impact of deep disappointment in love and work, but often feel stymied and unqualified to provide support for their client’s career-related concerns. This workshop offers therapists an approach to helping their clients develop a “career vision” that supports a greater sense of meaning, vitality, and purpose in client’s lives.
- Explain three ways career visioning might address the non-career-related presenting issues in therapy.
- Describe the key variables clients need to integrate for a successful career vision.
- Explain the key steps for the career change process
- Create a provisional outline for your own career vision.

About the Presenter:
Dr. John Lucy started his private practice in Decatur, GA in 2008 after 13 years working in higher education where he directed counseling centers at Oxford College and Agnes Scott College. At Agnes Scott he also served as an associate dean of students at Agnes Scott. Prior to his work in higher education, Dr. Lucy did his internship and post-doctoral training with the U.S. Navy. He was interested in making career visioning a part of his practice based on his own struggles with identifying career direction: he notes that he started college as an engineering student, ended college as a business major, and worked in business before returning to graduate school in theology and he subsequently found his place as a psychologist.
