Coherent Career Practice
Magnusson, Kris; Redekopp, Dave
Journal of Employment Counseling, v48 n4 p176-178 Dec 2011
Coherent career practice is conceptualized as an integrated reciprocal system involving 4 core elements: (1) career literacy; (2) career gumption; (3) career context; and (4) career integrity. It also accounts for "career integration", or the process by which these elements are assembled and reassembled. The source of client difficulties may inevitably be traced to a "blockage" in one (or more) of these elements or in the process of integrating them. If counselors can identify the source of blockage, they are more likely to be able to apply or invent interventions that deal with the real issues. Within this framework, clients are clients because 1 or more of the elements is either poorly developed or disconnected from the others.
