Let Your Life Speak: Assessing the Effectiveness of a Program to Explore Meaning, Purpose, and Calling with College Students
Thompson, Elizabeth; Feldman, David B.
Journal of Employment Counseling, v47 n1 p12-19 Mar 2010
Typical career planning courses assist students with the self-assessment process, career exploration, and decision making. Although this assistance is helpful, college students are increasingly concerned with issues of meaning and calling (P. Braun, 2005). The authors describe and test the effectiveness of the Let Your Life Speak course, a program to help students articulate their framework of life meaning and increase their sense of vocational calling. Results indicate an increase in sense of vocational calling, greater confidence in ability to achieve goals, and a deepened framework of life meaning. Moreover, 96% reported they would recommend the course to others. (Contains 2 tables.)
