CARDOSO, Paulo; DUARTE, Maria Eduarda  and  SOUSA, Augusto. Vocational Development and career counseling: contributions to social justice. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2016, vol.17, n.2, pp. 257-266. ISSN 1679-3390.

This article addresses the contribution of career orientation and counseling to social inclusion and social justice. The approach is justified by the context of the current economic globalization, where rapid changes have led to new employment opportunities. However, they have also posed challenges related to equality and social justice. The role of professional orientation and counseling in the promotion of social justice is historically based. Thus, the need for practices, balancing both the focus on the individual and on discrimination, and oppression factors is highlighted for interventions in disadvantaged populations. Finally, we present several examples of these practices in which the collaboration between the target population, the family and different institutions of the community is central to the integration in the labor market.

Keywords : professional orientation; professional development; social justice; social inclusion.
