MAREE, JG (Kobus). Mid-career construction counselling to instill spiritual awareness and allay fear. S. Afr. j. educ. [online]. 2017, vol.37, n.4, pp.1-10. ISSN 2076-3433.

This article reports on the value of career construction counselling for a black man facing a career crossroads. The participant was purposefully selected from a number of people participating in a career construction counselling course who had sought career counselling. An intrinsic, single-case study design was implemented and a qualitative, interpretive paradigm was adopted as the framework for the research. Data were collected using the Career Construction Interview (CCI). The findings suggest that the intervention enabled the participant to regain his sense of purpose and direction and also inspired others to deal with the apprehension and fear in their own lives. Future research should investigate the use of the CCI with people in diverse settings to establish its trustworthiness in non-traditional contexts.

Keywords : black man; Career Construction Interview; mid-career construction counselling; single-case study; spiritual awareness.
