CERIC Webinar #4: Psychology of Working Theory: A Transformative Approach to Work and Caree

The PWT advocates for a more seamless approach to understanding work, arguing that contemporary approaches to counselling and research need to embrace the intersection of work, social identities, ability/disability status and mental health.
