Another Way to Think about the Work We Do: Counselling for Work and Relationship
Richardson, Mary Sue
International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v9 n2 p75-84 Jul 2009
Counselling for work and relationship is proposed as another way of thinking about vocational psychology and vocational guidance. It can contribute to the search for a new paradigm for these fields. Central to this way of thinking are two shifts. A shift from a discourse about career to a discourse about work, and a shift to expand the focus of attention beyond the occupational domain to include multiple social contexts of work and relationship across both occupational and personal domains of life. The ways in which these shifts are responsive to theoretical and social contexts is considered.
