The rupture between career and mental health counselors may stem from the use of outdated theories and techniques for vocational guidance. The narrative turn in counseling provides an opportunity to repair this rupture, given a shared interest in life designing that assists clients to use work to actively master what they passively suffer. This presentation will examine the differences between vocational guidance, career coaching, and life designing. It will promote the idea that concentrating on counseling rather than guidance can repair the rupture and revitalize the use of career interventions by mental health counselors. Finally, the presentation will introduce participants to the life design approach for narrative career counseling.
