ALMEIDA, Maria Elisa Grijó Guahyba de  and  PINHO, Luís Ventura de. Adolescence, family and choices: implications on career guidance . Psicol. clin. [online]. 2008, vol.20, n.2, pp. 173-184. ISSN 0103-5665.

Adolescence is a life-span stage in which the individual goes through transitions that can lead to big shifts in development. This is a moment of identity consolidation, when the adolescent faces many choices that will define his/her future, such as a career choice. Family is one of the major elements that can help or hinder this moment of professional decision. Family influences can be assessed by many ways during the career guidance process, in means of helping the adolescent understand the issues that are beneath this important choice. When the young person recognizes those influences, he/she can use them consciously to construct his/her personal and professional life project.

Keywords : adolescence; family influence; career choice; career guidance.
