ECADOC Third Summer School

The third summer school of the European Doctoral Programme in Career Guidance and Counselling (ECADOC) will be held in Lausanne, Switzerland, from the 5th to the 10th of September 2016. Speakers from around the world will offer presentations and workshops on various subjects relating to career counseling. In particular, we will have two workshops given by Susan Whiston from the Indiana University in the United States and Paulo Cardoso from the University of Évora, Portugal. Their participation will give the participants an opportunity to work closely together with them and in smaller groups.
The first one-day workshop offered by Susan Whiston will be about increasing understanding, awareness, and knowledge related to clinical supervision in career counseling. Models of supervision will be discussed as well as the importance of the supervision relationship. The presentation will also include an exploration of cultural, contextual, and ethical factors in supervision and will conclude with a discussion of the importance of evaluation and gatekeeping in the field of career guidance and counseling.
The second workshop offered by Paulo Cardoso will aim at introducing participants to two idiographic assessment approaches of client change in career counseling: the Innovative Moments Coding System (IMCS), and the Interpersonal Process Recall (IPR) model. After each approach is presented, the participants will be able to do some exercises using what they have just learned and will be able to analyze the advantages and limitations of these techniques.
As usual, other parts of the summer school will give full presence to the 28 doctoral researchers, who will be able to present their research topics, and engage in discussions with fellow researchers on research challenges of their choice. Furthermore, two series of research methodology workshops (qualitative and quantitative) will be offered, among which the participants can decide. Additionally, the participants will enjoy several keynotes and the opportunity to engage in discussions on burning issues like the long-term impact of vocational education, career counseling in economic crisis, or research priorities concerning career guidance and counselling.
On a more recreational note, we will have the opportunity to visit the Art Brut Museum in Lausanne. It is an exhibition of Art where the creators are using generally unprecedented means and materials and are in no way obligated to any artistic traditions, preferring to avail themselves of highly singular figurative means.
Overall, this third edition of ECADOC will be a great opportunity for the doctoral researchers from 21 countries to build connections and meet with experts in the field of career counseling. It encourages networking, enables everyone to learn one from another, and be up to date with the research and happenings in the field.
