Family Therapy Perspectives on Anxiety Manifestation in Career Counseling: A Case Illustration with an Adolescent
Rochat, Shékina
International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v18 n1 p63-79 Mar 2018
Little is known about the origins of anxiety manifested in the career counseling process. Through a case illustration, this article highlights the appropriateness of using functional family therapy (FFT) principles in career counseling sessions to assess the family dynamics involved in this issue. The discussion emphasizes seven suggestions: (1) this anxiety is not necessarily easily recognizable and (2) is not limited to the career choice; this anxiety may be related to (3) separation anxiety, (4) parenting, (5) antecedent of family traumatic event, or (6) paradoxical injunctions; and (7) this anxiety can be treated through autonomy support.
