Using the Family of Origin in Career Counseling.
Chope, Robert C.
This paper is an attempt to develop a strategy for career counselors and researchers to organize data on the influences of the family of origin on the career decision-making process. Utilizing new approaches, counselors can deepen their clients' career planning process by assisting them in comprehending how family background, upbringing, support, and conflict affect career decision-making. With appropriate guidance, clients may be able to engage parents and siblings more frequently as supportive partners in the career counseling process. (Contains 15 references.) (GCP)
