Resources: A Career Development Process Model. Volume I.
A project was designed to provide high school students in Nevada with the opportunity to research and devise a self profile to guide future vocational and/or educational plans. Seven of 10 counselors and schools that volunteered completed the project. Counselors attended a training workshop where they "walked through" the process using the career process handbooks for counselors and students. Their students then used the handbook and Student Profile to summarize their aptitudes and attitudes as related to correlated occupations. It was concluded that students and their families could become self-directed with minimum counselor contact. The cognitive student-family-school approach recommended was found to be defensible. Positive evaluation results were received from counselors who participated in the workshop, counselor interviews, parent surveys, administrator/counselor interviews, three non-high school sites, and student taxonomy of learning. (Other materials provided are an example student profile, three evaluator summaries, and creative extensions by counselors. The products developed are available separately--see note.) (YLB)
