Micro-Credential 2 (MC2): Career Development and Mental Health Connections

This module addresses the connections between career development processes and interventions, including career education, and mental health outcomes. Coping with stress is reviewed as a common component of virtually all career development intervention efforts. Educators who work with students individually or in classrooms share core interpersonal skills enabling them to develop rapport, establish working alliances, and engage students to take action related to learning, problem-solving, and behaviour/attitude change. All educators solicit student input through questions and prompts, respond to this input with various types of reflections, and structure their interactions to ensure the aims of students and applicable curriculum are met. This module shows how these skills can combine with career development and mental health knowledge to improve career education/intervention and bolster mental health.
