Jvr academymy system of career influence (msci) workshop – jvr academy

Recently I had the opportunity to attend a workshop held by Professor Mark Watson of the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) on the ‘My System of Career Influences’ (MSCI). The MSCI is a qualitative career assessment tool grounded in the System Theory Framework (STF) of career development (Patton & McMahon, 2006), and based on constructivist theory, which is seen as the third wave in cognitive science (after psychoanalysis and behaviourism).

Constructivism acknowledges that individuals participate actively in the construction of their own reality, and it emphasises the personal and contextual nature of career development.
