The Meaning of Work and Love: Career Issues and Interventions.
Savickas, Mark L.
Career Development Quarterly, v39 n4 p315-24 Jun 1991
To help clients increase career success and life satisfaction, counselors can elicit and examine clients' concepts about work and love. If client's personal meanings conflict with social meaning of work and love, counselors can link client beliefs to client's career concerns, provoking cognitive dissonance that motivates client to modify beliefs. Client-centered and social influence techniques may be helpful. (Author/NB)
