Counselling for a career imaginary

I’m speaking to the Swedish Association of Guidance Counsellors again this morning. This time I’m doing something pretty new, which is based on my recent article Building a radical career imaginary: using Laclau and Mouffe and Hardt and Negri to reflexively re-read Ali and Graham’s counselling approach to career guidance.

The idea of this is that it translates some theoretical ideas into something very practical for people working in one-to-one guidance or counselling approaches.

In this presentation I try and take it on a stage further and really explore how it might look in practice. The presentation is designed as a workshop, so I’m hoping to give participants some time to try it all out.

Anyway, this is what I’m planning to do…
