Cognitive Information Processing Theory: The Synergy of Theory, Research, and Practice
Career decision-making and problem solving is a complex task, much more involved than a simple match between a person’s skills and occupational possibilities. Sometimes, individuals can become overwhelmed with the decision-making process. Individuals also vary in the degree and type of help they need in making a career decision.

Cognitive Information Processing (CIP) theory provides a helpful, empirically-based framework for supporting individuals as they navigate the career decision making process. CIP theory stemmed out of and continues to be informed by career practitioners as they work with clients.

Research on and delivery of CIP has spanned three decades, with different populations, delivery modes and geographical locations. The synergistic manner in which CIP continues to expand and deepen assures its ongoing relevancy for practitioners, researchers, and ultimately the individuals whom we serve.

In this session, Deb will provide an overview of CIP theory, summarize research relevant to the theory, preview current research projects, share resources for practitioners, and provide practical examples of how CIP has been used in practice in various settings with different clientele. Input from participants will be invited throughout the presentation and in a Q&A time at the end.
