Davey, Rhyll P.; Bright, Jim E. H.; Pryor, Robert G. L.; Levin, Kirsty
Australian Journal of Career Development, v14 n2 p53-62 Win 2005
This study examined the efficacy of video-based chaos counselling of university students. In this study, 42 university students watched a video that presented student case studies emphasising chaotic concepts. Career decision-making measures and measures of stress were taken one week prior, immediately after and one week after the video presentation. The chaos intervention had a positive impact on career decision-making self-efficacy and career exploration behaviours. Overall, the results support the use of a chaos video intervention. Implications for careers practice and future research are discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
