A Career Development General Education Seminar.
Stoddard, Kathleen B.
This paper presents an example of the implementation of the elements of developmental career counseling within an academic setting. A ten-week seminar, attended by 49 university student subjects, was evaluated, before and after, with the Vocational Development Inventory (VDI), the Career Activities Survey (CAS, an information seeking checklist), and the Career Assessment Form (CAF, a choice-decidedness index). Seminar objectives are stated and descriptions of various seminar sessions are included. Although significant differences were found on all three instruments and results suggest significant gains for those students participating in the seminar, the author points out that the results should be interpreted with caution since a control group was not utilized. The author further suggests that the CAS may, itself, be a treatment and that movement in the direction of "less decided" on the CAF may also represent growth. References are included. (Author)
