Positive Psychology and Career Development
Aulthouse, Michelle; Kolbert, Jered B.; Bundick, Matthew J.; Crothers, Laura M.
Journal of School Counseling, v15 n15 2017
The article details how school counselors can use principles of positive psychology to promote students' career development by facilitating students' pursuit of purpose and meaning. Specifically, the publication identifies how school counselors can actively employ with their students five constructs of positive psychology--namely strengths, positive emotions and flow, gratitude, perceiving and living a calling, and work/school hope--identified by Dik et al., (2014) as having empirical support for promoting career development. The authors of the manuscript provide approaches and techniques drawing on counseling theories including: cognitive therapy, solution-focused therapy, existential therapy, and positive psychotherapy, and offer actionable strategies for school counselors.
