Author of The Career Key and The Self-Employment Key, Dr. Lawrence K. Jones, will be presenting at the International Congress on Counseling in Istanbul, Turkey in April 2008. The conference is called "Counseling in International Perspective: Global demands and local needs." The title of his presentation will be "Using The Career Key in Different Countries Worldwide." Dr. Jones will speak about the challenges faced in helping people adapt, translate, and implement The Career Key. He will be joined by Nguyen Dang Tuan Minh who is developing The Vietnamese Career Key and Tareq Ragaban, who is developing an Arabic Career Key. We are very excited about our collaborations with Ms. Minh and Mr. Ragaban, and the prospect of being a part of the economic development in Vietnam and Saudi Arabia.
Dr. Jones and his wife Jeanine Wehr Jones are not strangers to Turkey. They were teachers there from 1963 to 1966. They returned last year for the first time and reconnected with many of their students and the culture. I know they are looking forward to this upcoming conference and being able to share the The Career Key's experience with many people in the Middle East and around the world.
