Psychology of Working Theory in the COVID-19 Era (Free Webinar)

Wednesday 24th June - 1430 to 1530

Overview

Psychology of working theory (PWT) provides an inclusive and critical view of work and career that is uniquely suited for our uncertain era. We are delighted that Professor David Blustein, a leading Boston academic, will be presenting this session. He will begin with an overview of psychology of working theory and present cutting-edge implications for practice and systems change.  David details the implications of the changing workforce in his recently published book “The Importance of Work in an Age of Uncertainty: The Eroding Work Experience in America”. He will draw upon ideas from this publication as an illustration of psychology of working theory in relation to real world problems.
