How Vocational Psychologists Can Make a Difference in K-12 Education
Perry, Justin C.; Shannon, Lisa
International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v17 n1 p97-115 Mar 2017
In general, vocational psychologists have not been engaged in applied research that demonstrates how career interventions can improve educational problems that matter to relevant decision-makers and stakeholders. This article describes how vocational psychology can make a difference in K-12 education by embracing an interdisciplinary community-based approach. To illustrate this approach, a quasi-experimental evaluation of multiple after-school programs provided to a sample of Hispanic Americans is presented. This study offers a realistic example of how researchers in the field can induce change through the development of meaningful partnerships within the community.
