Transcript of Tiedeman's Life Career Theory

Life Career Theory Tiedeman's Changing Persepective Spiritual Career Counseling Advantageous Utilizing Life Career Theory From Bloch and Richmond
"When individuals experience the wholeness of living, they expereince spirituality. Thus, spirituality is not brought into one's life; rather it develops" (Sharf, 2010).
Change - when change occurs by chance, it is called synchronocity; can be internal or external; many feelings and emotions
Balance - seek balance; it is natural to maintain balance between work, play, and other activities
Energy - needed in order to about change and balance in one’s life; many sources of energy (from others, from self, from outside resources, etc.)
Community - 3 types: (1) communities of companionship – immediate and extended family, close friends, (2) communities of culture – neighbors, classmates, coworkers, (3) cosmic community – those which concern large ideas, such as environment, poor, etc.
Calling - finding one’s ideal work
Harmony - finding the work that will bring about a true sense of appreciation and understanding
Unity - to believe in unity is to trust the universe
These seven concepts provide a spiritual way of viewing how individuals can acheive job satisfaction and satisfaction in their lives.
(Sharf, 2010) "Lifecareer is the dynamic, lived-in-the-moment process defined by each person in individual moments" (Sharf, 2010)
A Descriptive Theory in which the individual makes their career choice
Individuals are theory makers
A Spiritual Approach- not necessarily religious based
Life is your career
Trusts intuition
Views inner wisdom that comes from your intellectual ability and life experiences David Tiedeman began his early career using a Statistical approach
He studied the different assessments of aptitude, personality , and interest tests that were greatly used by career counselors
Realized many outside forces persuade our decisions
Armed Forces
All of these outside influences seek empowering their own interests and maintaining stability in their fields
Outside forces use career ladders and promotions to keep employees interested and to stay in the career
David Tiedeman tried to answer the question What does the inner-self of an individual want? Anna Miller-Tiedeman and David Tiedeman’s Career Decision Making: An Individualistic Perspective Focuses on viewing life as a career
Present-oriented; do not dwell on past or speculate on future
Values intelligence and experience of the individual
Individuals should:
accept themselves
accept their feelings
accept their beliefs
reduce stress
increase motivation
appreciate newness and surprise
(Sharf, 2010) circular theory, not linear because it is not defined
not discriminatory to race, age, gender, or culture
focuses on client's with a sense of spirituality, whether religious or not
Works for clients that do not enjoy inventory assessments You are in charge of your destiny References Seven Themes of Spirituality: Unfavorable Linear clients may not enjoy this theory because it is not black and white
There is no definite proof
Individuals that do not value spirituality
Theory is vague and may seem unclear Counselors must be aware of the differing spiritual values and be sensitive to each client's beliefs
Counselor does not advise or direct
Counselor helps the individual listen and appreciate themselves
Emphasize personal reality
