PIRES, Fernanda Mendes; RIBEIRO, Marcelo Afonso  and  ANDRADE, Alexsandro Luiz de. The Psychology of Working Theory: an inclusive perspective for career guidance. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2020, vol.21, n.2, pp. 203-214. ISSN 1984-7270.

This article presents and discusses the PWT (Psychology of Working Theory), highlighting its relevance for the career theories and its pertinence in the current working world and in the Brazilian context. The PWT proposition is to embrace the experience of working of all people, including groups at socioeconomic and cultural disadvantage, emphasizing multiple contextual factors that affect the access and experiences of work. Decent work is proposed as central to the theory, and contextual predictors, psychological and economical mediators are discussed, as well as the moderators and the outcomes that constitute the PWT. This debate contributes to the contemporary challenges, pointing out implications for theory, public policies and career guidance and counseling.

Keywords : vocational guidance; vulnerability; social justice; self-determination; psychology of working.
