an article by Cynthia R. Ronzio (Children’s National Medical Center, Washington, DC) published in Journal of Employment Counseling Volume 49 Issue 2 (June 2012)


This article addresses current psychosocial issues facing women in career transition and the implications of those issues for career counselors.

Specifically, psychosocial developmental trajectories, the roles of family and relationships, the importance of underlying physical and mental health issues, and sociocultural and contextual stressors are relevant for women in the midst of career change.

The author discusses how career counselors can prepare for this complexity and addresses clients’ current economic and social milieus. A checklist is provided to aid the career counselor in addressing the multiple issues that a new client brings to the 1st counseling encounter.
