Transforming career in cross-cultural transition: the experience of non-western culture counsellor trainees
Following a qualitative research frame, this study used a narrative case study approach to describe and understand the life career experience of counsellor trainees from non-Western cultures (NWC). Eight individuals participated in the study and the major themes highlighting the turning points and critical plots of the eight individual narratives were synthesized into a general narrative. This general narrative reflected both the commonly shared and varied experiences and perspectives of these individuals during the transition period. Several theoretical and practical implications were generated from the study. Recommendations for future research were also addressed.
