Identifying Relevant Predictors of Latina/o Adolescents’ Vocational Outcome Expectations
Keywords:positive psychology, Latina/o adolescents, vocational outcome expectations
A positive psychology and cultural framework are useful to understand Latina/o adolescents’ vocational outcome expectations. In the current study, we examined how hope, happiness, college-going beliefs, enculturation, and acculturation influenced Latina/o adolescents’ career development. Higher levels of hope and college-going beliefs predicted vocational outcome expectations. A discussion regarding the importance of these findings and recommendations for counselors and administrators are provided.
