Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project, ”Life Coaching – s Symptom of Modern Individualisation” deals with the concept of life coaching according to Sofia Manning. The project seeks to illuminate life coaching from different perspectives in order to investigate what might have caused the need for this newer phenomenon. The project investigates the product of life coaching by giving an account of the meaning of full potential and the pathology of self-realisation by using Maslow’s theories. Furthermore, we look at the identity construction of modern society, where work-, family- and social life creates what can be seen as a “patchwork”-identity. When looking into the before mentioned subjects theorists such as Sennett on work life, Keupp on “patchwork”-identity, Andersen & Mørch as well as Veenhoven and Beck thoughts on individualisation are used.
