Shiftwork: A Chaos Theory of Careers Agenda for Change in Career Counseling
Bright, Jim E. H.; Pryor, Robert G. L.
Australian Journal of Career Development, v17 n3 p63-72 Spr 2008
This paper presents the implications of the Chaos Theory of Careers for career counselling in the form of Shiftwork. Shiftwork represents an expanded paradigm of career counselling based on complexity, change and uncertainty. Eleven paradigm shifts for careers counselling are outlined to incorporate into contemporary practice pattern making, an emphasis on planning, openness, flexibility, risk, possibility thinking, mattering and meaning, transforming information, scalable reasoning, emergence and trust as faith.
