Parents — Bridging Dialogue for Children’s Career Counseling & Guidance in Asia
by Raza Abbas

Recorded March 10, 2020

Parental role is believed to influence children’s school/career development. The Life Design paradigm (Savickas et al 2009) places emphasis on the parent’s responsibility, given that career construction is considered the result, not only of intra-personal processes, but also of contextually built and shared intra-family and social processes. Five hundred parents and their children attending middle school and high school were involved in a pioneering research study. Both completed a career selection questionnaire standardized for the Asian context. This was followed by a presentation on exploring and selecting futuristic careers.  At the conclusion, a behavioral feedback form was executed by both.

Raza Abbas, a lifetime APCDA member, has demonstrated strong leadership to enhance professionalism in career education in Pakistan, inspiring hope in countless people.
