Assisting High School Seniors Who Have Not Made Post Graduation Plans through the Use of Individual and Group Guidance Exercises.
Carrier, Lawren A.
This practicum was designed to assist high school seniors who had not made decisions about what they would do after graduation. A series of group and individual guidance experiences was developed to provide students with self-knowledge, and knowledge about the options available to them, in order to provide them with the means to develop a plan of action for after high school. A program was developed which consisted of a series of group and individual sessions which incorporated the use of the "Discover" computer-assisted career exploration program and materials taken from the "Discover for High Schools Career Planning Guidebook." After completing the "Discover" program and exercises with a group of high school seniors who were undecided as to their post-high school plans, a series of tours of local training and employment sites were conducted. The tours were accompanied by group sessions in which the information obtained from each tour was incorporated into each student's post-graduation plan. Analysis of the data revealed that all 15 participants in the career decision making group were able to list a specific plan of action for after graduation, including a time frame, and short-term goals, where appropriate. Some students had already taken action to begin their plan prior to graduation. (Author)
