    Contemplative Career Counseling Training for Professionals


    Career counselors and advisors, academic advisors, guidance counselors, academic and student affairs professionals, psychotherapists, or anyone that wants to work with others utilizing mindfulness as a tool.


    Contemplative Career Counseling draws upon the explosion of new developments from the intersection of neuroscience and practices of mindfulness. The meeting of these worlds has profoundly impacted the counseling field. This forward-looking training explores the application of contemplative interventions specifically to career counseling to enrich counselor and client experiences.

    Time and place:

    Introduction to Contemplative Career Counseling Presentation
    Thursday July 30, 2015, 7pm-9pm in Abrams Lounge at the Center for Community on the CU-Boulder campus.  Cost $15.

    Full day Training
    Friday July 31, 2015, 9am-4pm in S350 at the Center for Community on the CU-Boulder campus. Cost $50.


    CONTEMPLATIVE CAREER COUNSELING can be defined as the practice of creating congruence between the client’s inner experience and their outer life. It is not an entirely new way of counseling; it does, however, change the quality of the counseling relationship by integrating mindfulness into the process to deepen and expand the awareness of both the counselor and the client. It does this by going beyond the limitations of the rational mind in helping clients detach and dis-identify from, as well as expand, the story or narrative of their lives and career path. Disengaging from one’s narrative allows for the opportunity to contact other aspects of experience such as emotions and body sensations. This enables the client to connect with a fuller and more integrated sense of self in the present moment. In this training, you will learn how to bring mindfulness, deeper listening, and open focus into the practice of career counseling for the purpose of facilitating clients’ fuller, more multi-dimensional investigation of their career choices.

    Linda Faucheux has a Master Degree in Contemplative Psychotherapy and has 20 years’ experience in career counseling working with university students and adults in transition.  She is currently the Assistant Director for Counseling at the University of Colorado, Career Services.
