RODRIGUEZ-MORENO, María Luisa. Approaches underpinning the reducing of gender stereotypes in career guidance. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2013, vol.14, n.1, pp. 119-131. ISSN 1984-7270.

There is a lot of theoretical literature about the importance of avoiding gender stereotypes and discriminatory strategies in career guidance interventions. Less common, however, is the existence of methodological and pedagogical suggestions to implement programs for preventing gender discrimination in education. In this article, following the British model of DOTS, specific strategies are proposed to help specialists to implement guidance counseling programs to avoid sexism in education at different levels. A variety of approaches are proposed on which the counselor can base their intervention: experiential learning, social learning, development of competencies, work-based learning and some instances of actual activities that are usefull in interventions in education and career guidance.

Keywords : career guidance; gender; development of Skills; learning; pedagogy.
