The Need for Dialogue between the Vocational Psychological and Organisational Perspectives on Career
Patton, Wendy; Collin, Audrey
Australian Journal of Career Development, v18 n3 p52-56 Spr 2009
As editors of the recently published "Vocational psychological and organisational perspectives on career: Towards a multidisciplinary dialogue" (Collin & Patton, 2009a), the authors have considerable interest in this particular issue of the "Australian Journal of Career Development." This short piece will first present the purpose and thesis of that book and, in the light of them, will then comment on the four papers in this journal. These papers draw attention to the existence of organisational issues and practices which vocational psychologists either are unaware of or ignore, even though they are pertinent to a fuller understanding of the nature and experience of career. At the same time, it can be concluded from these papers that the theories, research and intervention practices of vocational psychologists would be very beneficial in the organisational domain.
