Transitioning Contexts of Career Psychology in South Africa

南非事業心理學的過渡

Mark WATSON

Abstract

The present article explores the cultural relevance and appropriateness of career counselling in South Africa. The recursive influence of South Africa’s apartheid era on the present and future directions for career psychology in South Africa is considered. While South Africa’s historical past restricted the career development of individuals, the article explores how present realities continue to restrict such development. Several issues present in this phase of South Africa’s transformation are identified that the career counselling profession in South Africa needs to address and redress. In particular, the article calls for a more integrated national initiative that will involve all stakeholders in the discipline.
