Career Counseling for Women Preparing to Leave Abusive Relationships: A Social Cognitive Career Theory Approach
Wachter Morris, Carrie A.; Shoffner, Marie F.; Newsome, Deborah W.
Career Development Quarterly, v58 n1 p44-53 Sep 2009
Career counselors work with people from varied segments of society. For battered women, some of the challenges they face from intimate partner violence may significantly influence their career exploration and decision making. Social cognitive career theory (SCCT; R. W. Lent, S. D. Brown, & G. Hackett, 1994) is a framework that has important implications for working with these women. In this article, the authors present the unique career needs of battered women terminating abusive relationships, the relevance of SCCT to this population, strategies for using SCCT when working with these women, and a case study illustrating effective use of SCCT.
