Objective: The present study aimed to compare the effect of constructivist career counseling on career adaptability of female students in families with and without addicts in Isfahan City. Method: For this purpose, a quasi-experimental research design along with pretest-posttest type with two experimental groups and two control groups was used for the conduct of this study. Thus, 60 participants were voluntarily selected and were then randomly divided into two experimental groups (15 participants with addicted parents and 15 ones without addicted parents) and two control groups (15 participants with addicted parents and 15 ones without addicted parents). Career Adapt-Abilities Scale was the main instrument in this study. The experimental groups participated in seven 90-minute sessions of constructivist career counseling and the control group did not received any intervention. At the end of the sessions, the posttest was administered to them. Results: The results indicated that constructivist career counseling had different effects on the career adaptability of female students in families with and without addicted parents (P < .001). However, the results of post-hoc LSD test indicated that constructivist career counseling had no different effects on the children with addicted parents (the experimental group) and the children with non-addicted parents (the control group) in the dimensions of concern, curiosity, and control (P > .05), but it had a different effect on the two groups in terms of trust dimension (P < .05). Conclusion: Considering the effect of constructivist career counseling on career adaptability of adolescents in families with addicted and without addicted parents, it is recommended that education officials, teachers, and academic advisors use this method to make appropriate choices and strengthen motivation in students.
