Description

This chapter discusses how to use career themes or central tensions to extend clients' occupational plots by identifying fitting settings, possible scripts, and future scenarios. Practitioners assess the educational and vocational interests that clients manifest in their favorite magazines, television shows, or websites. Vocational interests are important because they guide approach behavior as clients select and then occupy the most advantageous setting in terms of requirements, routines, and rewards. Descriptions of these vicarious environments suggest clients' interest in preferred work settings and attractive occupational environments. Career construction theory likens an occupational setting to a holding environment to emphasize the dynamics and core function of an environment. To help clients identify fitting niches, practitioners may analyze the settings that attract their interests along four dimensions: places, people, problems, and procedures. Practitioners also concentrate on how clients might animate a possible self in a preferred setting. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2018 APA, all rights reserved)
