The population of individuals in recovery from substance abuse frequently confronts a number of challenges and issues in their career development process. These issues can include: low self-efficacy, negative outcome expectations, significant transitional events, and underdeveloped adaptive career behaviors. As a result, these individuals frequently struggle to obtain and sustain fulfilling and lasting employment. The proposed workshop series is aimed at identifying and meeting the specific needs of this population with selected, targeted career interventions. Theoretical frameworks, which provide a rubric for identifying the specific characteristics and challenges common to this population, are outlined in detail. Support materials, intended for usage during the workshop series, are provided in the appendices.
