Areas of Research
Dr. Domene's primary research area is young people's career development processes, particularly the relational contexts of their career development (e.g., how couples or families work together to construct and pursue goals for their future work and life together). He also engages in research on how newcomer youth and international students to navigate the transition into the Canadian workforce, as well as adolescent and emerging adult career processes more generally.
A second area of research interest for Dr. Domene is the exploring ways that technology influence human development and ways that technology can be used to enhance people's wellbeing. This research area encompasses the use of technology in conducting qualitative research, negative and positive influences of the internet on young people's wellbeing, and innovative applications of technologies within counselling psychology practice.
Dr. Domene also has some interest in exploring the professions of counselling therapy and counselling psychology, which encompasses such topics as the historical development of these professions in Canada, approaches to research within these professions, and best practices for preparing students to become competent counselling therapists and counselling psychologists. He is particularly interested in professional issues that relate to his other two research interests.
