Social constructionism in vocational psychology and career development

McIlveen, Peter and Schultheiss, Donna E. (2012) Social constructionism in vocational psychology and career development. Career Development Series, 4. Sense Publishers, Rotterdam, Netherlands. ISBN 978-94-6209-078-1


This is the fourth book published in the Sense Publishers Career Development Series which began in 2006.

The current work addresses the scholarship of social constructionism and its place in disciplinary and professional endeavours of vocational psychology and career development. There is little doubt that social constructionism has generated new perspectives, theories, research methods, and practices, but there is so much more work to be done to ensure that social constructionism continues as a productive force. Indeed, the chapters in this book will do considerable work to advance social constructionism in the field.

As editors, we aimed to present an optimistic view of social constructionism that could generate new ideas for research and practice. What the authors have achieved is a clear and informative invitation to new scholars and an update for current scholars in the field.
