Falk, William W.
This monograph on significant other influence and vocational development begins with a short historical overview of the concept of "significant other." The author then presents a summary of the ways in which the concept has been measured and reviews selected empirical studies with an emphasis on findings related to race, sex, and residence. The conceptual and methodological needs for future research are discussed. In conclusion, the author relates the relevance of these concepts and conclusions to vocational educators. (BM)
