Over the last few years, the role of parental career-related behaviors in career development has been identified in several studies. Specifically, these behaviors involve difficulties in the adolescents' career decision-making. In the literature, there is a validated scale for measuring parental career-related behaviors in the Italian language, but the validation refers to the Swiss context. Thus, the present study aimed to test the psychometric proprieties of the parental career-related behaviors questionnaire (PCB) in a sample of 323 adolescents and, after an item-adaption, in a sample of 374 university students in Italy. Confirmatory factor analyses were performed to support the three-dimensional structure of the original PCB. Moreover, associations between PCB and career decision-making difficulties were investigated. The results showed that the PCB is a useful instrument for measuring parental career-related behaviors also in the Italian context. Finally, the PCB dimensions were meaningfully related to career decision-making difficulties.

Abstract

Over the last few years, the role of parental career-related behaviors in career development has been identified in several studies. Specifically, these behaviors involve difficulties in the adolescents' career decision-making. In the literature, there is a validated scale for measuring parental career-related behaviors in the Italian language, but the validation refers to the Swiss context. Thus, the present study aimed to test the psychometric proprieties of the parental career-related behaviors questionnaire (PCB) in a sample of 323 adolescents and, after an item-adaption, in a sample of 374 university students in Italy. Confirmatory factor analyses were performed to support the three-dimensional structure of the original PCB. Moreover, associations between PCB and career decision-making difficulties were investigated. The results showed that the PCB is a useful instrument for measuring parental career-related behaviors also in the Italian context. Finally, the PCB dimensions were meaningfully related to career decision-making difficulties.
