Toward Self Discovery and Life Option: Non-Stereotyped Career Counseling.
Romero, Patricia L.; Romero, Dan
This article reports the preliminary field test results of the Counselors Expanding Career Options Project (CECO), the goal of which was to develop and field test non-stereotyped career education materials for rural and non-urban high schools. The project was funded by the Women's Educational Equity Act. The field test design establishes four comparison groups of approximately 18 schools each. The first group participated in a one-day training workshop and used The Whole Person Book. The second group used The Whole Person Book but did not receive training. The third group participated in the CECO pilot project. All three groups used CECO materials in their career guidance programs. The fourth group is the control group, not using CECO materials. Participants were pre- and post-tested with The Attitudes Toward Sex Role Differentiation in Education, the Social Reaction Inventory, the Bem Sex Role Inventory, and the Title IX Women and Careers Inventory. The results were analyzed to identify differences due to the sex of the participant and/or the professional position held in the school. There is a need for improved pre-service as well as in-service counselor education regarding non-sexist career development. (JL)
