Overcoming Personal-Social Barriers to Entry into Non-Traditional Occupational Preparation Programs. A Final Report.
Thomas, Hollie B.; And Others
This report describes a research project which (1) assessed personal-social barriers to female entry into non-traditional jobs, (2) developed a treatment program to assist women in overcoming those barriers, and (3) determined program impact. A project overview, the first of four major sections, precedes a survey on barriers (section 2). Following a literature reivew concentrating on the areas of stereotyping of occupations and barriers to women's entry, the methodology and results of the study are presented: population identification and selection (teachers, secretaries, and nurses who had considered but not pursued a male-dominated occupation), instrumentation, data tables, survey instrument efficiency, and deterent identification. Survey materials are appended. Section 3 presents an educational program with the topics: pursuing a non-traditional occupation, interference, career decision making, self-assessment, career requirements, planning for acquisition of job skills, job entry, and coping on the job. Designed for self-directed study or workshops, the course consists of eight units with objectives, text, exercises, and references. (All printed instructional materials are included.) The final section includes a literature review on the outcomes of related programs and analysis of assessment data on the program. Methodology and results are given, including population, pre- and post-testing, followup, program impact, and data tables. Evaluation instruments are appended. (YLB)
