PARENT-CHILD INTERACTION AND VOCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT--A REVIEW OF THEORY AND RESEARCH.
WHITE, ALAN E.
RESEARCH ON THE EFFECT OF PARENT-CHILD INTERACTION UPON VOCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT IS REVIEWED. SEVERAL STUDIES SUPPORT BORDIN'S PROPOSAL THAT A CHILD'S VOCATIONAL INTERESTS WOULD BE AFFECTED BY IDENTIFICATION WITH HIS PARENTS, BUT AS EACH STUDY DIFFERED IN METHODS AND SAMPLES, NO SIGNIFICANT CONCLUSIONS COULD BE REACHED. STUDIES WHICH TESTED ROE'S HYPOTHESIS THAT CHOICE OF OCCUPATION BY PERSON OR NONPERSON ORIENTATION IS AFFECTED BY FAMILY PATTERNS SHOWED NEGATIVE RESULT. THIS INDICATED THE DIFFICULTY OF CATEGORIZING FAMILY ATTITUDES ON THE BASIS OF RETROSPECTIVE DATA AND ALSO SUGGESTED AN ERROR IN ROE'S OCCUPATIONAL CATEGORIES. A GROUP OF STUDIES WHICH ANALYZED THE FAMILY BACKGROUND OF EMINENT AND SUCCESSFUL MEN IS ALSO DISCUSSED. SOME OF THESE STUDIES SUPPORT ROE'S HYPOTHESIS THROUGH THE CORRELATION OF DIFFERENT FAMILY PATTERNS WITH DIFFERENT OCCUPATIONS, BUT CONCLUSIONS DID NOT APPLY TO THE GENERAL POPULATION. FUTURE RESEARCH IN THIS AREA MUST BE BASED UPON MORE SOPHISTICATED DESCRIPTIONS AND CATEGORIZATIONS OF OCCUPATIONS AND FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS.
