Abstract and Keywords

Positive psychology, counseling psychology, and psychology of integration can form the basis for a new way of thinking about the development of and professional planning for individuals with disabilities. An examination of important journals on career counseling, rehabilitation, and positive psychology showed that few research studies are actually interested in career counseling and that little consideration has been given by vocational guidance practitioners to the problems perceived by individuals with disabilities. Referring to the sociocognitive model, learning theory, and the more recent life design approach, this chapter focuses on the way people represent work and their own future and on how vocational guidance and disability experts could collaborate with these individuals to plan an adequate and satisfactory professional future for themselves.

Keywords: positive psychology, career counseling, vocational guidance, inclusion, disability, satisfaction, career development, sociocognitive, learning theory, life design
