Qualitative Relational Career Assessment: A Constructivist Paradigm
Palladino Schultheiss, Donna E.
Journal of Career Assessment, v13 n4 p381-394 2005
Consistent with calls for postmodern and constructivist approaches to career counseling and assessment, a systematic review of qualitative approaches to the assessment of work and relationships is timely. Situated within a constructivist paradigm, a conceptual rationale for the qualitative assessment of relational influences within the career domain is presented, together with a comprehensive review of the state of the art of current qualitative relational career assessment practices. This review is followed by a recommendation to move the field forward toward a more contextualized view of work embedded within the relational domains of life.
