The Career Thoughts Inventory (CTI) in Research and Practice.
Vernick, Stacie H.
The purpose of this document is to provide an up-to-date analysis of what has been learned about the Career Thoughts Inventory (CTI) through the findings of various research studies. The studies looked at the negative career thoughts of a variety of populations and identified several correlates to dysfunctional career thoughts. Such correlations add both to an understanding of the career and mental health constructs that are associated with dysfunctional career thoughts and to the convergent validity of the CTI. This paper contains a summary of CTI research to date (correlates to dysfunctional career thoughts and further evidence of the CTI's convergent validity). A research summary table is included which contains key points about research samples, variables, measures, designs, analyses, findings, and implications. Also provided is a detailed description of CTI research, including information about research questions, findings, discussion, implications for practice and for studies employing CTI. (Contains 27 references.) (JDM)
