The Change Process Model and It’s Implications for Career Assessment and Vocational Evaluation Practice

April 18, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Learning Objective:

As a result of this training, the participant will be able to:

  • identify the 5 stages of the change process model
  • identify the 10 change processes
  • determine appropriate strategies and vocational recommendations to engage consumers who are at each particular stage of change


What does the change process model have to do with vocational evaluation and career assessment?  In vocational evaluation and career assessment we assist individuals in making CHANGES in their lives by helping them determine a career path, training, and/or education. This session will help you gain the skills to determine your client’s readiness for change and adjust your assessment interventions and recommendations accordingly. Various members of the VECAP board have heard Sue Cooper speak and she comes highly recommended!
