Life Design Counseling With High School Students: A Narrative Approach


According to educational experts and career guidance, the market and global economic forces linked to a postmodern society have led to a crisis in career development models and practices. in such an uncertain changing context students face major challenges during their career development. The life design method was used in this study to increase student's engagement in their career development. Life Career Design is a constructivist and narrative model-based approach that is mainly advised to empower people and inspire them to participate in a process that has personal significance for them. Our career interventions consist of face-to-face interviews with 30 high school students. This study uses a qualitative method to offer in-depth details on this practice. The narratives of 30 participants were analyzed afterward using the content analysis technique by NVivo 11 software to better assess students' career development. The findings can help students improve their capacity to anticipate their career actions and design strategies appropriate for their goals and context. This study is a component of the efforts made by improving career interventions to better prepare future citizens for participation in a knowledge-based society.
