dc.description.abstractUsing autoethnography, this thesis explores how immigrant Chinese Canadian youth and adult children respond to parental pressure when their chosen career path is contrary to their parents‘ wishes. Data sources include memory recollection and a review of my journals and assignments I completed during my master‘s program in counselling psychology. Making a career choice is potentially highly troubling for this group because of incompatible cultural values about individual choices and family authority. Awareness of the potentially deep and powerful influence of conflicting cultural values will benefit counsellors who work with Chinese Canadian youth and adults. Group therapy is a particularly apt therapeutic intervention for this group of clients because of its potential for social validation.en_US
