[Autom. eng. transl.] The cultural transformations that characterize our society in relation to changes in the economic and employment system pose complex training problems for the training system, and in particular for orientation actions, in defining the paths to be implemented and the 'answers' to be offered to those who ask for support or advice. This requires the development of clear strategies and new categories of analysis to provide effective and targeted help in moments of decision uncertainty, of transition from one context to another, of managing role change. In general, orientation can be considered a path of human and social 'promotion' that starts from self-knowledge and the surrounding world to arrive at an insertion that is as suitable as possible to the personal characteristics and needs of the world of work. To this end, it aims to develop in the individual knowledge, skills and behaviors, both general and specific, capable of helping him to face positively the different 'critical' situations that he will encounter in the course of existence. The objective of this volume, which brings together the contributions of qualified experts in the sector, is to offer those who already work in the field of guidance, but also to those who intend to undertake this activity, a summary of the problems and experiences related to the job, and therefore also social, insertion of people who find themselves in employment difficulties. Ideally, the book can be divided into two parts. The first two chapters present a general reference framework on the problem of career guidance and active employment policies; the following chapters deal with the aspect of individual differences in orientation with respect to particular categories of users: students with decision problems, young people at first job placement, adults in employment difficulties, women in professional reintegration, disabled people, immigrants.
