As many scholars have noted, we are now entering the Second Machine Age, which is characterized by radical transformations in the world of work. The presentation will review new strategies that career coaches and counselors can use to help clients prepare for a world wherein flexibility, adaptability, resilience, and creativity will be the hallmarks of successful transitions to decent and dignified work.  The presentation will be followed by a conversation among the participants about the complex challenges posed by a future of constricting opportunities for a meaningful work life.

 David L. Blustein is a Professor in the Department of Counseling, Developmental, and Educational Psychology at the Lynch School of Education at  Boston College in the United States.  David has published over 100 articles and book chapters on career development, the psychology of working,  work-based transitions, poverty, unemployment, and relational theories of working over the course of his career as a career practitioner, professor,  and researcher.  He is the author of “The Psychology of Working: A New Perspective for Career Development, Counseling, and Public Policy” and  the editor of the recently published “Oxford Handbook of the Psychology of Working.” These two books, along with much of his recent work, are  devoted to creating a broad and inclusive approach to understanding the role of work in people’s lives, optimally encompassing everyone who  works and who wants to work.  

David is a Fellow of the National Career Development Association (NCDA), American Psychological Association (APA), and the American Educational Research Association (AERA).  He has received the John Holland Award for Outstanding Achievement in Personality and Career Research, the Extended Research Award by the American Counseling Association, and the Distinguished Achievement Award from the Society for Vocational Psychology.  In addition, David has consulted with state and national government agencies on issues pertaining to career development education and the school-to-work transition process.  David also has been a practitioner for over 25 years, and continues to see clients as the Director of Career Development Services for Child and Family Psychological Services in Norwood, Massachusetts.
