Expanding Career Options: Non-Stereotyped Career Counsling.
Romero, Patricia L.
Field testing of learning materials developed by the Counselors Expanding Career Options (CECO) Project, specifically The Whole Person Book, was conducted during the 1977-1978 school year in 72 secondary schools in Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, and Colorado. The field test design established three comparison groups of secondary counselors and teachers. The first group (N=27) attended a workshop and used the materials with students; the second group (N=32) used the materials, but received no training; and the third group (N=27) was the control group. Several instruments were used to generate attitudes toward sex role differentiation. Results of the data analysis indicated: (1) the training group's knowledge of women's participation in the work force increased more than the other two groups; (2) females reported more positive attitudes than males toward women and work roles; and (3) no differences in attitudes as measured by the Attitudes Toward Sex Role Differentiation in Education (A/SRDE) were found between the pre- and post-testing times.
