Selected Aspects of Parental Influence on High School Seniors' Career Development.
Bearg, Esther M.
The purpose of this study was to design and implement a school-based career development workshop for parents. Analysis of the impact of that treatment on the career maturity of their children who were seniors in high school was the central concern. In order to improve parents' abilities to communicate effectively with their children concerning career planning, it was hypothesized that seniors whose parents participated in a career development workshop were likely to display more growth in career maturity than those whose parents did not participate. The subsidiary thesis was that parents would manifest interest in and benefit from a career development workshop. The results of the study did not support the first hypothesis. The parents did, however, demonstrate an interest in and a desire for more career development information. (LRA)
