Career Development in Argentina.
Aisenson, Diana B.; de Faletty, Raquel Migone; de Del Compare, Mercedes Garcia
In Argentina, vocational guidance is used to identify psychological and educational resources to help people through transitions and changes, and to develop training, job-related projects, and strategies useful to acquire new competencies. Though public policies favoring the development of an integrated national counseling system do not exist, many intermediate organizations provide free guidance programs. Public universities have the most efficient and organized guidance services. Guidance is also delivered through health services, and some state hospitals provide free vocational guidance services as part of their mental health programs. Many counselors attempt to meet the needs of the population through private practice as well. Priority areas for the future include: defining a policy for career guidance; creating a system that ensures access to career guidance by the whole population; increasing the education budget; and creating regional information and guidance centers. Actions needed in order for these events to occur include increasing the national budget; coordinating educational levels to facilitate transitions; training counselors; and defining ethical principles for counseling.
