Career Development Groups: Why We Did It!
Davidshofer, Charles O.
The document presents a program of career development groups initiated in a university setting to meet the increasing demand for vocational counseling, as well as from a general discontent with traditional one-to-one individual counseling. Structured exercises were designed to actively involve participants in occupational information--seeking behavior, while specific tasks taught student to explore the world of work through exposure to campus and community resources. Group members shared information they had gathered during the three one hour sessions when the group met. In addition, personality and interest tests were administered and discussed in relation to other factors that influence a career decision. Specific plans for evaluation were developed and initialed after the program was developed to its present format; thus data available for analysis are limited. The measure of vocational attitude maturity used in the project was Crites' Vocational Development Inventory. (Author/SES)
