Relational Aspects in Career and Life-Designing of Young People
Vanhalakka-Ruoho, Marjatta
International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v10 n2 p109-123 Jul 2010
Relational aspects in the life-designing of young people are the focus of this article. These aspects consist of the involvement and use of one's relational network in life-designing. The data consists of 146 narratives of young people, 111 ninth graders in comprehensive school and 35 students in upper secondary school. The research question centres around how young people narrate the ways in which their significant others engage, or are invoked in their life-designing. The results suggest that career and life-designing entails both relatedness and self-regulation.
