Career counselling – constructivist approaches

Faglitteratur innen karriereveiledning illustrasjonsbilde

Since its birth in the early twentieth century, career counselling has been steeped in the traditions where counsellors assumed the role of experts, and the client as a passive responder. To keep up with the changes in the world, career counsellors have been challenged to modernize their practice. Many have now turned to constructivist approaches where individuals are experts in their own lives and in constructing their careers.
