Abstract

This study compared dysfunctional career thoughts and perceptions of vocational identity for individuals with different types of disabilities and examined whether the relation of career thoughts to vocational identity was moderated by type of disability. Ninety adults with cognitive and physical impairments were administered the Career Thoughts Inventory and the My Vocational Situation. Results indicate that individuals with cognitive impairments had more decision-making confusion and external conflict than individuals with physical disabilities. The groups did not differ in their perceptions of vocational identity, and disability type did not significantly moderate the relationship between career thoughts and vocational identity. Implications for career counseling of individuals with disabilities are discussed.
