Example text

An effective counseling approach maintains that each client is indeed a unique individual. This position discourages stereotyping, especially in a society that is culturally diverse. The basic issue here is that clients who come to us with critical unmet concerns must be viewed as unique individuals with unique backgrounds and traits. Career Life Perspective The career life perspective is a good example of how career counseling has developed a more inclusive role. The terms career life or, as some prefer, life/career illuminates the interconnection between all life roles.

K. Strong of Stanford introduced the Strong Vocational Interest Blank in 1927. This measure of interest, constructed from the responses of individuals in certain occupations, provided an important tool for linking assessment of interests with certain occupations. In 1928, Clark L. Hull published Aptitude Testing, suggesting that human traits could be matched with job requirements. Achievement testing in schools made rapid progress during the 1920s. Personality testing was used during World War I but was much slower in development.

Within this framework, counselors focus on a multiple spectrum of domains of the “whole person” as in a holistic approach to counseling. Career and personal concerns are considered as inseparable and interrelated. We use the example of a depressed client to illustrate the interrelatedness of personal and career concerns.

Alma was currently doing secretarial work in a large firm, a job she had held for two years.
