An Investigation of the Differential Effects of Group versus Individual Treatment on Vocational Indecision and Indecisiveness.
Cooper, Stewart E.; Van Matre, Gene
The differential effects of individual versus group treatment on career indecision and general indecisiveness among career counseling clients were investigated. Data were obtained from 24 career-undecided students seeking vocational counseling through the counseling center of a midwestern state university. Twelve subjects participated in the group counseling approach, and 12 received individual counseling. The level of career indecision was assessed by Osipow's Career Decision Scale; the level of general indecisiveness was assessed by an eight-item scale derived from Salamone. Results of a repeated measures split-plot factorial multiple analyses of variance (MANOVA) test and an analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) model found that both treatments led to client gains but that neither was better than the other on the two process measurements. (Two tables are appended). (Author/YLB)
