Career Counselors and Professionals
The theoretical foundation of the SDS is as strong as ever. Based on John Holland’s theory that both people and work environments can be classified according to six basic types, the SDS uses the RIASEC model as a framework for your clients’ process as they consider the personality characteristics, interests, aspirations, and competencies that will guide them to a rewarding career.
As an A-level product, the SDS can be used by school counselors, career development facilitators, education specialists, and career professionals. Learn more about integrating RIASEC theory with cognitive information processing (CIP) theory in the Handbook for Using the Self-Directed Search: Integrating RIASEC and CIP Theories in Practice.
