Abstract

Peter Akosah-Twumasi explored the acculturation strategies and perceived parental influences on career constructions among Sub-Saharan African youth migrants in Australia. He developed three theoretical models, which provided in-depth understanding of the positive parental roles and identified challenges with reconciling personal interests with parents' expectations. His results could foster development of more inclusive counselling interventions.
