Abstract

The goals of this study are to assess parents' role in the career choice implementation of children in high school, in the perspective of children and parents, and to conceptualize the vocational counselling in high school. This study continues a previous investigation on models of vocational interventions in Portuguese Secondary Schools (Pinto, Taveira, & Fernandes, 2003). Through the method of grounded theory (cf. Strauss & Corbin, 1994, 1998) were investigated the perspectives of a total of 62 participants, by using a open question questionnaire (Pinto, 2000). The results evidenced that parents may influence their children's vocational development by the direct relation with them and by the indirect relation with others in the context. The participants recognize the parents' role on their children career decision making and development through parental attitudes more or less directed, specific and intentional and concreteness of activities. The results show the need of expanding vocational interventions, taking into consideration the contexts of life and its role in the decision making and career development.
