Video Group Social Models, Group Stimulus Materials and Client Characteristics in Vocational Counseling: An Experimental Study.
Hamilton, Jack A.
Eleventh grade male students participated in this study designed to promote career information-seeking and information-processing behavior. Three experimental treatments were administered: (1) structured group stimulus materials, (2) group social modeling, and (3) group social modeling combined with discussion. Three control procedures were employed: (1) insight group counseling; (2) wait control, and (3) no-interest control. Planned stimulus materials were used in four group counseling sessions. Four video presented group social models were used in four sessions. This sequence and content was followed in the modeling-discussion treatment. Group social-modeling and modeling-discussion treatments were found to promote significantly more knowledge of and ability to stimulate career decision-making at one school. Structured stimulus materials and modeling-discussion were found to stimulate significantly more subject performance of actual career decision-making behaviors at a secondary school. (Author/KP)
