Clarification of a client's self-concept and its implementation in the world of work remains an overarching goal of career counseling. To date, counselors have largely used objective measures of interests, values, needs, and abilities in their efforts to accomplish this goal. Objective assessments alone offer decontextualized views of the self, often disregarding nuances in individual differences. To address this problem, counselors can use the Career Style Interview (CSI), which forms the assessment as a method for attaining a more comprehensive and personally meaningful representation of the self. A description of the CSI and a case study are presented to promote counselor understanding of this method.

This paper provides an overview of narrative career counselling, which is presented as a predominant variant of constructivism. Constructivist theories have relatively recently emerged as a significant force within vocational psychology and the practice of career counselling. The systems theory framework and the theory of career construction are introduced as theoretical frameworks amendable to constructivism and narrative career counselling. Although a stable definition of narrative career coun...

Despite impressive advances in recent years with respect to theory and research, personality psychology has yet to articulate clearly a comprehensive framework for understanding the whole person. In an effort to achieve that aim, the current article draws on the most promising empirical and theoretical trends in personality psychology today to articulate 5 big principles for an integrative science of the whole person. Personality is conceived as (a) an individual's unique variation on the genera...

Broadly tunable infrared lasers analogous to dye lasers operating in the visible spectrum are provided by significant improvements upon an FA(II) color center laser previously demonstrated in a limited way. The improvements include techniques for also using FB(II) and F2 color centers and include substantially increased concentrations of the F-centers in regions of pumpable geometry, judicious choice of pumping frequencies and powers and variable, frequency-selecting resonators that are capable ...

Abstract Career theory proposes the importance of role models as helping to guide individual development. Furthermore, the media often depict role models as essential to career success. However, research on role models as a construct distinct from developmental relationships with mentors and behavioral models has waned. This article makes the case for reinvigorating the role model construct. A revised definition is provided, depicting role models as cognitive constructions based on an individual...

We compared our analyzed results of narrative responses to participant Strong Interest Inventory-College Profile results to determine correlational strength. The results indicated a .27 overall correlation between the two assessments, demonstrating that some questions from the career construction interview are more and les...

We developed and implemented a group career construction intervention based on the My Career Story (MCS) workbook and compared it with a traditional career intervention for fostering life-career design among early adolescent youth. Participants (N鈥=鈥108) were assigned based on convenience to an experimental group (27 girls, 27 boys) or a control gr...

Society鈥檚 collective response to the effect of sweeping changes in the occupational world on people living in poverty has been inadequate as has been its ability to turn global changes and challenges into prospects for sustainable decent work for all people, especially those in disadvantaged contexts. Moreover, little if any innovation in career counselling has been witnessed in these contexts. This chapter examines the value of an innovative strategy aimed at postmodernising the approach to and...

An intrinsic, single-case study design was adopted using a qualitative paradigm, and an integrated, qualitative鈥+鈥塹uantitative approach was implemented as the research framework. Self- and car...

The Psychology of Working Theory (PWT) teaches that career development approaches should focus more on groups that are marginalized and the aim in career counseling should be to assist clients in accessing decent work (Blustein DL, J Career Assess 19: 316鈭322, 2011; Blustein D, Masdonati J, Rossier J, Psychology and the international labor organization: the role of psychology in the decent work agenda, Unpublished report, 2017).
