The Use of SSII in Counselling.
Feltham, D. W.
This paper attempts to relate the Safran Student Interest Inventroy (SSII) to a decision-making model and show how it can be used as an important informational device in enabling students to become goal directed, assume more responsibility for being, and develop their confidence in becoming. The decision-making process involves working through the following steps: (1) selecting a goal; (2) collecting all pertinent information; (3) establishing and examining alternatives and possible consequences; (4) selecting an alternative after weighing the risks against the values involved; and (5) periodic evaluation and modification as required, to approach the desired goal. Input for the process of decision-making about one's future educational career plans will require a knowledge of (1) your own interests and aptitudes; (2) the world of work; and (3) the relationships between your interests, aptitudes and requirements of the chosen careers. Tying together the decision-making process and input for the process is a strategy which attempts to minimize the risk of error. (Author/TA)
