Exploring the Application of Multiple Intelligences Theory to Career Counseling
Shearer, C. Branton; Luzzo, Darrell Anthony
Career Development Quarterly, v58 n1 p3-13 Sep 2009
This article demonstrates the practical value of applying H. Gardner's (1993) theory of multiple intelligences (MI) to the practice of career counseling. An overview of H. Gardner's MI theory is presented, and the ways in which educational and vocational planning can be augmented by the integration of MI theory in career counseling contexts are discussed. The Multiple Intelligences Developmental Assessment Scales (C. B. Shearer, 2007), a research-based self-report measure of intellectual disposition, is introduced, and a case study illustrating the effective application of H. Gardner's MI theory to career counseling is presented. (Contains 2 tables.)
