Sociological Studies of Occupations; Abstracts.
Overs, Robert P.; Deutsch, Elizabeth C.
One hundred abstracts of sociological studies of occupations are collected in this volume, designed primarily as a vocational guidance counseling tool. Taken mainly from journal articles, the studies usually relate to the subtle social characteristics of jobs, such as cultural pressures, role identities, role conflicts, prestige, and differential social situations. The occupations range from janitor to physician and musician to city-manager. The abstract format for each of the studies included: (1) a brief description of the article and its major findings, (2) the author's own abstract (when available), (3) a description of data gathering and treatment methods, (4) methodological cautions to heed when interpreting findings (when relevant), (5) a general statement of theoretical orientation, (6) an indication of scope, whether the article refers to a job or an occupational field, (7) implications for counseling, emphasizing the study's significance in the area of vocational counseling, written by an experienced psychologist (vocational counselor), and (8) the pertinent Dictionary of Occupational Titles classification and code. A subject and an author index are included. (ET)
