The theme of “Hope in times of uncertainty” was chosen as a reflection of the need to support both clients and guidance practitioners in the context of the covid recovery period and the Russian aggression.

Seminar participants had the opportunity to participate in an introductory lecture and masterclass delivered online by the world-renowned founder of the Hope-Action Theory, professor emeritus of the University of British Columbia, Dr. Norman Amundson (Canada). At the workshops during CBS Riga 2022 seminar national experts presented a variety of methods, tools and approaches suitable for students, young people, adults, as well as those aimed at career guidance practitioners themselves. The workshops addressed various psychological and practical obstacles that hinder career planning and integration into studies or the labour market.
