Lives are lived in communities, small or large, supportive or hindering, practical, personal and professional. It’s a fact!
Communities are there and decisions regarding our lives are entangled in many communities for each and every one of us. Maybe you chose to become a career practitioner, career researcher or policy developer because of communities?
Rie Thomsen will share insights from her practice based research on Career Guidance in communities with adults and young people. Results of the research serves as a base for the development of a reflective model for career guidance in communities.
In her presentation Rie asks how career guidance interact with the everyday lives of people and their communities. Based on her book Career Guidance in communities she discusses the possibility to frame guidance as part of a community and not as an activity separate from it.
Career Guidance in communities can be considered a social practice theory which advocates changes in perspective from the individual to the collective as the starting point for the development of guidance activities.
As resources for guidance in many countries are suffering from cut backs discussions on how to invest resources become increasingly important. Engaging in existing communities and creating flexible forms of career guidance activities that allows for adaptation to meet the diverse needs of different communities might be a way forward. Also allowing the participants to influence the guidance process, so that they, together with the guidance professional, set the stage for new collaborative modes of delivery.
