In answering these questions, refer to relevant readings, recorded lectures, and class
discussions. You should include in-text citations of some format to make your references clear,
but you do not need to include a formal references/bibliography page. Remember that writing
answers for this exam is one of just a few opportunities to demonstrate your knowledge based on
readings, recorded lectures, and class discussions.
1. Whether you agree or disagree with the policy position of “Medicare for all”, please
discuss the implications of expanded health care coverage that is more accessible for all
on vocational development. Please be sure to define what you mean by vocational
development.
2. Do you agree or disagree with the notion that emerging adults are a vulnerable
population? Provide a rationale for your position based on readings and discussion in this
course.
3. In what way, if any, do you think the notion that there is a typology of personality types
that are more or less congruent with occupational settings (Holland’s theory) might be
useful to mental health counselors. Be sure your answer reflects your knowledge about
Holland’s theory and its limitations.
4. If you could modify the advice “find your passion”, how would you modify it based on
class readings, discussion, and your own personal experience.
5. Why is the notion of “project” a potentially valuable construct for mental health
counselors?
6. Why is the construct of “decent work” so significant in the psychology of working
theory?
