Case Study Paper – 30 pts
For this case study, you will create a case conceptualization of either a fictitious client or of one of
your field placement clients (using pseudonym for name). The purpose of this assignment, in total, is
to gain insight and enhance career counseling practice by applying theory and theoretical practices.
Consider introducing a challenging or interesting case (not necessarily one where everything is going
well), provide a contextual framework, hypotheses, insights, ideas. You will then pick two career
development or counseling theories to apply to this client, identifying the strengths and limitations of
each theory. The final portion of the case study will be picking one of the theories you applied to the
client and use that to formulate some next steps you would use in working with the client.
