Cross Cultural Considerations in Understanding Vocational Development.
Stump, Walter L.; And Others
The analysis advances various notions concerning ways in which the cultural variable might ultimately affect vocational decisions. The problem is viewed cross-culturally. To understand vocational development, one needs to consider (a) how a man attains his identity in a given culture, (b) how vocational development is influenced by institutional forces, and (c) how cultural changes produce correlated change in vocational development. The basic assumptions are: (a) culture provides a context in which the individual validates his vocational-self; (b) cultural contexts comprise a variety of intitutional forces, each one influencing vocational development to some degree; and (c) cultural forces change with respect to urbanization and industrialization, with consequent changes taking place in the patterns and/or possibilities of an individual's vocational development.
