Abstract

M. S. Richardson (1993) has proposed that vocational psychology be repositioned to a new theoretical location from which to produce knowledge about work in people's lives. This article underscores the importance of Richardson's proposal and comments on three features of the new location that she maps out for vocational psychology: defining work as a social activity of everyday life, using multiple realities constructed by perspectivity, and legitimizing knowledge by its usefulness in practice.
