Title: Women in Transition: Implications for Career Counseling
Author: Weston, Amanda Jo
Abstract: This thesis paper begins with an in-depth literature review that analyzes the career counseling process with two specific populations: women who are transitioning from welfare-reliance to self-sufficiency, and women who are transitioning out of relationships that are characterized by intimate partner violence (IPV). The analysis includes a historical look at theories that have influenced the creation of models and best practices used in the career counseling field today, and highlights popular and effective techniques that can be used in community-based and private practices. The paper highlights the importance that laws, legislations, children, resources and support systems have on a woman's ability to successfully transition out of a negative life scenario into a more positive one. The paper culminates with a resource guide designed to provide quick, concise, and applicable support to career counselors working with the two above-mentioned populations. This guide is presented in a user-friendly A thru Z format.
