Making Career Theories More Culturally Sensitive: Implications for Counseling
Young, Richard A.; Marshall, Sheila K.; Valach, Ladislav
Career Development Quarterly, v56 n1 p4-18 Sep 2007
The primary question addressed in this article is whether and how career theories can be more culturally sensitive without losing value as conceptual explanations or their usefulness for counselors. Contextual action theory is identified as a means to develop culturally sensitive explanations. Six steps are proposed and illustrated, including using the naive observations and subjective reports and recognizing ongoing processes. The use of these steps in counseling is also addressed.
