McIlveen (U. of Southern Queensland, Australia) and Schultheiss

(Cleveland State U., US) present eight chapters exploring the major

foundations of social constructionist approaches to vocational

psychology and career development. Specific topics include the self in

work as a social construction, an interdisciplinary view of social

constructionist vocational psychology, career as narrative, career

development through participation in communities of practice, and a

critique of career discourse practices.
