A Theoretical Framework for an Occupational Orientation Program.
Key, James Perry
A theoretical framework for an occupational orientation program was developed by reviewing the literature on theory and theoretical frameworks, by synthesizing occupational choice theory, and by devising the timing and elements of the framework. Occupational choice theory was synthesized by considering the trait-factor, sociological, developmental, and personality occupational choice theories; the self-expression, childhood experience, psychoanalytic, need reduction, decision making, and social occupational determinants; and the developmental life stages of occupational choice. The proposed occupational orientation program was devised from educational elements using the synthesized occupational choice theory as a theoretical basis. It includes group occupational guidance as a central core, supported by individual counseling, a cross-sectional representation of occupations in general education courses, occupational competence development courses, and placement and follow-up services. It is designed to orient the student to the occupations within the world of work, with his own attributes in relation to occupations, and with the occupational choice process. This Ed.D. dissertation was submitted to North Carolina State University. (Author)
