A Developmental, Preventive, and Consultative Model to Reduce Sexism in the Career Planning of Women.
O'Neill, James; And Others
This model attempts to provide information about socialization, sex role learning, and career planning that can be used in consultation and educational programing to help women plan their career and life goals. The model identifies five factors which contribute to women's socialization, sex role learning process, vocational sex role, self concept, and career choice process. These factors are familial, societal, individual, socioeconomic, and situational. The factors are discussed, and over 175 references to existing theory and empirical research justifying the model are given. A verbatim script of a 20-minute slide/tape show giving an application of the model is included. This script includes the five factors described in the conceptual model and some of the barriers to the career development of women, including fear of failure and success, lack of confidence and assertiveness, loss of femininity and social rejection, and guilt. Implications of the model and slide show in terms of consultation with faculty, direct outreach programing, the training of counselors and counseling psychologists, and the need for further research and theory about the career development of women are discussed.
