What Color Is Your (Counseling) Parachute? 

This is a live, in-person Training and a live synchronous webinar for 1.5 CORE hours.   Whether job incompatibility, transference, vicarious injury or burnouts plays a role in your professional life, how do you go about identifying what you can offer another type of work or career? Or, perhaps you have other gifts and skill sets that you’d like to tap and/or develop.  Inspired by both personal experience, and observation; however, the best selling book, “What Color Is Your Parachute?” does an exhaustive review of covering this subject, but we’ll be applying this specifically to Licensed Professional Counselors. Additionally, the panel discussion will feature several LPC’s that have navigated this transition and they’ll discuss how their counseling skills has benefited them in the current profession.


At the conclusion of this training, participants will be able to:

1.) Define, describe and Write a Career Design.

2.) Understand  a Life Design.

3.) Explain the ‘Parachuting Process’: Career and job options for people with counseling background
