In their career counseling model, Bloland and Edwards (1981) assumed people can enjoy a higher quality of life when work and leisure activities meet psychological needs. Thus, the major tasks of the counselor and client are to assess the client's needs, determine what combination of work and leisure activities might best meet those needs, and help the client engage in those chosen activities.
The study's limitations included that the sample was limited to full-time employed women from a small region of the Southeast, and most were Caucasian.. They may have limited generalizability to people in other geographical areas, individuals of various racial and ethnic backgrounds, unemployed individuals, and men. Additionally, correlations could be inflated from similarity among the concepts being measured, similar items across instruments, and method variance. Method variance is potentially a problem in that the methods used for quantifying independent and dependent variables were the same, possibly inflating the reported relationships.
