Integrating Stories and Scores to Promote Innovative Career Counseling in Individual and Group Contexts
- 8 Downloads
This chapter begins with a theoretical overview of Savickas’ thoughts on how the many different “dots” can be connected in career counseling once assessees’ stories have been elicited qualitatively (using the CCI) to craft their “life portraits”. Next, I explain briefly what is meant by a career-life story narrative and then discuss the value of eliciting stories and scores integratively to enable career counselors to help assessees use and synthesize their responses and reflections. I then summarize the importance and essence of integrative QUALITATIVE-quantitative group career counseling and discuss practical aspects of using the career choice and construction conversation template in individual and group contexts to enhance assessees’ reflections on their stories and scores and to connect what they consciously know or are aware of with subconscious advice. The overall aim of career counseling is to deal with people’s authentic reason for seeking counseling—this and a few general issues are discussed before the chapter is concluded.
