Assessing Gender-Based Circumscription of Occupational Aspiration.
Gottfredson, Linda S.; Lapan, Richard T.
Journal of Career Assessment, v5 n4 p419-41 Fall 1997
The circumscription and compromise theory posits the development of self-image in occupations, narrowing with age of acceptable career options, and compromise of vocational aspirations. "Mapping Vocational Challenges" is an activity based on this theory that helps adolescents map and discuss the beliefs that might lead them to rule out possible careers. (SK)
