My Career Chapter: Guidance Counsellors' Appraisal of Its Suitability for Adolescents
McIlveen, Peter; Patton, Wendy; Hoare, Nancey
Australian Journal of Guidance and Counselling, v17 n2 p148-159 Dec 2007
This article presents an investigation into the properties of a new narrative technique for career assessment and counselling, "My Career Chapter: A Dialogical Autobiography". This technique is used to facilitate clients' construction of a meaningful career-related autobiography. Previous research indicates the usefulness of My Career Chapter for adult clients and its alignment with recommendations for the development and application of qualitative assessment and counselling techniques. This study specifically commences research into the technique's applicability for adolescents. A focus group, comprised of guidance counselling professionals whose work primarily pertained to the needs of adolescents, found that there is potential to develop a version of My Career Chapter that is suitable for adolescents.
