Attitudes Regarding Career Counseling: Perceptions and Experiences of Counselors-in-Training
Lara, Tracy M.; Kline, William B.; Paulson, Donald
Career Development Quarterly, v59 n5 p428-440 Sep 2011
The authors explored attitudes regarding career counseling. Interview data were analyzed and conceptualized using grounded theory methods. Peers, faculty, and programs influenced participants' attitudes. Participants' observations regarding instruction and developed understanding of their own career development figured into favorable attitudes regarding career counseling. Data revealed that students did not perceive that they were competent or confident conducting career counseling. Implications for counselor education are discussed.
