Career Exploration for High School Women: A Model.
Birk, Janice M.; Tanney, Mary Faith
Designed for high school women at the sophomore level, this program is intended to act as a catalyst for exploration of career goals with a heightened awareness of the influence of sexism and stereotypic attitudes regarding women's roles. Together with three special activity periods, there is continued assistance by the high school counselor in the exploration of careers, but in a less formalized or structured manner (e.g., directing toward sources of information, suggesting parental conferences, etc.). The activities utilized for this program consist of various role playing situations, group fantasies, small group feedback opportunities, a "careergram" measuring participants' consideration of unconventional (for females) occupations, and a discussion of the pervasive myths regarding women's work habits. The formal and informal assessments of this program and concrete suggestions for implemeting career counseling programs for high school women will be presented. (Author/LAA)
