Abstract

Natural language used in conversations and therapeutic language used in dialogue between client and counsellor can be theorized as the workings of dialogical self. The metaphor of life as a story is evident in the way dialogical self is structured by conversational exchanges among multiple I-positions, embodied as the one person, who is in conversation with others real and imagined. My Career Chapter is a working model of the theory of dialogical self, applied to as narrative approach to career assessment and counselling. My Career Chapter facilitates self-reflexive dialogue with self and significant others represented as I-positions and who are part of the client’s career story. As such, My Career Chapter is a method for conducting self-research and as a way of knowing oneself from multiple perspectives. In this way, the client develops a rich and meaningful narrative about career that motivates decision-making and actions toward personally significant change.
