Preparing Ex-Offenders for Work: Applying the Self-Determination Theory to Social Cognitive Career Counseling
Johnson, Kaprea F.
Journal of Employment Counseling, v50 n2 p83-93 Jun 2013
Ex-offenders, persons with criminal and limited job histories, are being released into communities every year. Social cognitive career theory (SCCT) focuses on several cognitive-person variables and on the interaction effect with the environment. Conceptually, the author views the integration of SCCT and the self-determination theory as a promising model for engaging ex-offenders in behavior change and job counseling. A fictional case study is presented that applies the integrated theory model.
