Non-Participation in Guidance: An Opportunity for Development?
Thomsen, Rie
International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v14 n1 p61-76 Mar 2014
This article discusses how new opportunities for guidance can emerge from an analysis of the interplay between the participation (or lack of participation) of the individuals in career guidance, and the career guidance practitioner's response. The article suggests critical psychology as a framework for career guidance research and presents the analytical categories of "participation" and "conduct of everyday life" as means to analyse the dialectical relationship between participant and structure, as well as individual and society. Finally, it is argued that flexible career practices that adapt to the needs of participants have the potential effect of greater social justice.
