Career and Life Planning: Trans-theoretical Assumptions and Strategies

梁湘明(S. Alvin LEUNG)




This article examined the underlying assumptions, objectives, and strategies of career and life planning. Eight assumptions derived from developmental career theories were discussed. These assumptions were also grounded in the humanistic and existential counseling theories. The significance of the eight trans-theoretical assumptions in relation to the goals and objectives of career and life planning was examined. In addition, several categories of commonly used career and life planning strategies were introduced. The differential utility of these strategies was discussed.
