Women: Issues of Career Guidance and Vocational Counseling.
Human Interaction Research Inst., Los Angeles, CA.
This report summarizes eight months of work on a study of recent development in career guidance and vocational counseling for women. The original objectives of the project, as stated in the Human Interaction Research Institute (HIRI) contract proposal, were: (1) to review and analyze studies concerning the participation of women in the labor market; (2) to derive the career counseling implication of these findings for women; and (3) to develop the information and conclusions into formats readily usable by both counselors and women who are making career decisions. During the course of the study, research investigations in the subject area published during the past 10 years and studies currently underway were identified and screened for acceptability based on the methodological and statistical soundness of their design. Studies passing the initial screening were classified under one of three general areas: (1) women's participation in the labor force; (2) women's educational and training opportunities; and (3) issues relating to sex differences which affect women's participation in the labor force. Each classified group of documents was analyzed to yield both current and trend data, highlighting differences prior to and after recent federal legislation. The subsequent analysis of the literature highlighted findings as they varied for several subpopulations of women. Finally, the findings derived were synthesized and evaluated to yield information of practical utility to counselors and to women making career decisions. This document is one of the study products developed to contain these findings. (Author)
