Theorising Adolescent Career Maturity: Existing Evidence And Directions For The Future
Patton, Wendy A. & Creed, Peter (2007) Theorising Adolescent Career Maturity: Existing Evidence And Directions For The Future. In Skorikov, Vladimir & Patton, Wendy A. (Eds.) Career Development in Childhood and Adolescence. Sense Publishers, Rotterdam.
The construct of career maturity is a key component of the developmental theory of Donald Super, particular with respect to adolescent career development. Despite widespread criticism as to its limitation as an explanatory variable in adolescent career behaviour, it remains widely used in empirical work. In this chapter, we review the current empirical work on career maturity and then discuss current theorising about career maturity and its reconceptualisation towards career adaptability. Issues with respect to research and practice raised by the new approaches are then addressed.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
