Editors Walsh (Ohio State U.) and Savickas (Northeastern Ohio U. College of Medicine) present a resource for students and practitioners involved with vocational assessment. The aim is to encourage the growth of the profession, as well as individual professional growth, by providing access to information about various techniques, procedures, and theories--the practical and applied aspects of the field as well as the foundational research. After the editors' introduction on current issues and innovations, 14 contributions discuss the field's history, new directions for theory, women's career development, career counseling process and outcome, career interventions, and research on various aspects of work adjustment. The final section comprises three contributions on professional issues, models and methods for career assessment and counseling, and assessment with culturally diverse individuals.
