Career as Story: An Introduction to the Haldane Idiographic Method of Career Assessment for Multicultural Populations.
Biller, Ernest F.
In order to take into consideration the unique experiences, background and language differences inherent among multicultural populations for the purposes of career assessment, the process must allow for the counselee to construct their own story. This paper suggests the use of Haldanes Dependable Strengths Articulation Process (DSAP) for these purposes. The author proposes that the Haldane DSAP process is appropriate for all populations, including special needs, alternative education students as well as multicultural groups. The DSAP process requires many hours of well-supervised group work to help counselees work through the process, but the benefits to the individuals with regards to building self-esteem are limitless. It is recommended that this is an excellent process for use with clients/students who are not ready to benefit from the use of more traditional career assessment tools. (GCP)
