Abstract

Each Society for Vocational Psychology (SVP) biennial conference has included a thematic element to provide a focus for presentations and discussions at the conference as well as a focal point for any publication that may have resulted from the conference. The theme of the 2016 SVP Biennial Conference, held at the Florida State University on May 16–17, was “Integrating Theory, Research, and Practice in Vocational Psychology.” Videos of individual presentations from the conference are available at: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCsXiACK-LKrVRKb1z_Nw3METZg-SoRFA

The conference content and the resulting edited book are based on the assumption that the science and practice of vocational psychology are more successful with the integration of theory, research, and practice. This book’s purpose is to examine the challenges and opportunities for integrating theory, research, and practice in vocational psychology from the perspectives of theorists, researchers, practitioners, and journal editors, with the hope that this knowledge will lead to improved science and career interventions.
