"Every worry and trouble, big and small,
that a person can experience has an
what kind of career is best and possible
for me is to ask:
How should I live my life?
We helpers should assist people
to find answers to this fundamental
moral and existential question."
(From: Wisdom-Based Helping Practice, Human Science Research Conference, Victoria, B.C., June 2002)
There is a great and generous effort afoot to preserve and continue Vance's legacy of innovation in counselling research, writing and practice. In order to help make this a reality a fund has been established, to be administered by The Canadian Career Development Foundation.
"To ask: What kind of career is best and possible for me is to ask:
How should I live my life?" (R. Vance Peavy, 2002)
The R. Vance Peavy Memorial Fund was established at the request of his family to continue Vance's legacy of innovation and scholarship in career counselling research, writing and practice.
The fund is directed by a Committee of Vance’s colleagues and administered by the Canadian Career Development Foundation (CCDF). The Memorial Fund is being used to ensure that Vance’s publications, published and unpublished, remain accessible, and his SocioDynamic constructivist approaches continue to be available.
Visit the CCDF web site at http://www.ccdf.ca/ccdf2/ to access brochures and obtain information about the activities of the Fund.
There is no more fitting memorial to the man himself, and no greater legacy to all who share his vision.
