The Career Conversation: Training Parents to Help Their Children Make Career Decisions.
Osguthorpe, Russell T.; And Others
Described is a pilot test of a project whose prime objective is to improve parent/child interaction concerning career choice. The subjects (N=30) were ninth and tenth grade students and their parents. Parents were grouped and introduced to the Career Conversation Manual, and challenged to hold at least one planned conversation before the next meeting. Three subsequent sessions were held. The parents involved felt that the experience was positive for themselves and their child, and that there existed a need for regular interaction with professionals in order to succeed in their parent-child career conversations. A portion of the program is excerpted. (LFB)
