Guidance expertise and professional agency
The project studies the guidance skills of professionals in two contexts, in the practical teaching of social work and in the specialization training of occupational health physicians. Workplace guidance has a key role in learning how to become a professional at work. In the project, guidance skills are analysed in connection with training and development processes. We study how guidance skills are learned; a concept for guidance training and a tool for assessing guidance skills are developed for the professional fields.
