Abstract and Keywords

The psychology-of-working perspective is a useful lens to focus on the unique needs of adult workers seeking employment and training services. This chapter presents common adult work transitions and a variety of employment services that an adult worker might see, both of which are analyzed from a psychology-of-working perspective. Alternatives and improvements are suggested, illustrated by a case example and by a set of specific recommendations for modifying extant employment and training services. The chapter concludes with a set of questions designed to further research and intervention development from the psychology-of-working perspective.

Keywords: adult vocational development, work transitions, employment and training services
