The Systems Theory Framework of Career Development: Expanding Its Research Influence
McMahon, Mary; Watson, Mark
Australian Journal of Career Development, v16 n3 p47-54 Spr 2007
Since its first publication more than 15 years ago, the Systems Theory Framework (STF) has become an established metatheoretical framework in the international career development literature. Ten years into its history, the first review of its development was published. The present article overviews the expansion of the STF literature since that initial review, particularly in relation to the emerging body of research since 2002. The overview demonstrates the recursive relationship that exists between theory, practice and research. The article concludes with a discussion of the future expansion of STF research and suggestions for the directions that STF research can take.
