D. (c)2009 The Creative Career Constellation: Overview ADAM ZAGELBAUM, PH.D.00:00ADAM ZAGELBAUM Welcome to this video of, ah, careerinterviewing in adolescents.

Ah, it's, it's something I've entitled the Creative CareerConstellation and essentially it is a mind-mapping technique which, ah, is basically a radial diagram that helps to visually as well as verbally explain to children, ah, ways in which careers and, ah, educational opportunities as well as their personal values come together in a way thatshowcasesa dynamic, ah, way of approaching one's life opportunities.01:25The Process of Career ConstellationsADAM ZAGELBAUM How to do the activity is simple, and, ah, it will be showcased on this video andsubsequent segments.
