If Ego Identity Is the Envelope Then Adaptive Change Is the Note to Self: Scaffolding the Career Choices of Adolescents
Bowles, Terence V.; Brindle, Kimberley A.
International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v17 n1 p5-18 Mar 2017
The first aim of the current article is to primarily propose a model to assist career counsellors in understanding and guiding adolescents towards career commitment. The second aim is to focus on the relationship between career identity and career certainty, and how these positively influence the achievement of ego identity and maturity. Finally, it is proposed that systematically applying a model of adaptive change will prompt adolescents to explore and understand their career options with greater certainty. Applying such a model provides career counsellors with a practical framework to guide adolescents with their career choices.
