Career Guidance and Health Promotion with Adolescents: Keys for Intervention Programs
Aguiar, Fernando Henrique Rezende; Conceição, Maria Inês Gandolfo
International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v15 n3 p221-236 Oct 2015
This qualitative study investigates underprivileged students' perceptions of their future, their health, and the relevance of a career counseling process. Interviews regarding career guidance were conducted during a workshop with nine eleventh-grade students from a public high school in Brazil's capital. The data were analyzed according to Gonzalez-Rey's constructive-interpretive method and three zones of senses emerged from this process: (1) the need to offer a supportive and safe space, (2) the challenges faced by participants and facilitators, and (3) the benefits from the intervention. The results suggested that this population has specific needs beyond career-related needs. They have limited sources of leisure and suffer from cultural and socio-economic prejudices.
