Career Redirections for Adults.
Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR. Education and Work Program.
This handbook is a set of workshop materials that career/lifelong planning professionals, counselors, and human resource development specialists can use as a basis for presenting career planning workshops for adults. A staff guide that describes the Career Redirections for Adults workshop appears first. The remainder of the handbook is divided into eight sections, each of which incorporates activities and discussions and requires a two-and-one-half to three hour session. The eight content units guide participants through a developmental sequence that combines the concepts of eight decision-making/problem-solving stages with five career change stages. The eight units include what is important to the individual; interest assessment; skill assessment; the great leap (personal assessment of career options); from self-understanding to action (career exploration through interviews with resource persons); personal job readiness--overcoming barriers to implementing career change; decision making; and implementation of career decisions. Each unit contains both facilitator materials (staff guides) and participant materials/guides. Staff guides provide background information and instructions, including rationale, objectives, procedures, time, and materials required. Participant guides contain handout materials to complete the activities. At the end of each session is a journal activity for participants. (YLB)
