Abstract

Given the known benefits of group counseling for school-aged individuals, career group counseling has arguably been an under-utilized modality for providing career development services in school settings. This article synthesizes concepts from Social Cognitive Career Theory, constructivism, and group process to provide a conceptual framework for this work. An illustrative example provides a detailed description of a career counseling group for practitioners in schools to reference in their own approach to career group counseling. Practical and theoretical considerations and implications for this work are discussed.
