Florida State University will host the 2016 Society for Vocational Psychology conference on May 16 and 17. A partnership between The Career Center and the College of Education, the conference will bring to campus individuals from more than 50 institutions and organizations, as well as eight countries.

The Society for Vocational Psychology is a section of the American Psychological Association’s Division 17 (counseling psychology). The Society consists of a diverse group of researchers and career practitioners who share a common vision of helping individuals with work-related issues across the lifespan in an ever-changing global economy.

“We are excited that Florida State University was selected to be the host for the 2016 biennial Society for Vocational Psychology conference,” said Janet Lenz, conference chair. “Florida State University has long been an international leader with regard to the integration of theory, research and practice in career services.”

Five plenary sessions, 21 program presentations and 25 roundtable sessions will be held in the Student Services Building (SSB) and the Dunlap Success Center (DSC). At a University Center Club reception on Monday night, more than 20 different poster sessions will highlight research and practice in the career development and vocational psychology field.

“We are pleased to have leading scholars and practitioners in the field of vocational psychology, visiting our campus for two days to share their work and expertise,” Lenz said. “The conference provides an opportunity for Florida State to showcase its comprehensive, state-of-the art Career Center that serves as a model in the profession for the design and delivery of career services.”
