Research and Postulates Related to a Behavioristic Theory of Career Development.
Ewens, William P.
The postulates for the behavioristic theory of career development are based on ideas that emerged from a systems analysis of career education. The systems analysis was structured to reflect the following definition of career education: Career education is composed of all the planned and incidental learning experiences of the individual that contribute to the development of attitudes, values and competencies relative to the world of work which are operational in making educational and vocational plans and to function on the job and to the development of a satisfying and contributing way of life. The postulates reflect the importance of perceptual psychology and research findings on manifest interest-perceived ability relationships. The postulates also recognize the birth to death concept of career development of persons of different socio-economic levels. (Author)
