Validation of a Multivariate Career and Educational Counseling Intervention Model Using Long-Term Follow-Up
Greenwood, Janet I.
Career Development Quarterly, v56 n4 p353-361 Jun 2008
In this study, the author sought to validate the effectiveness of a multivariate career and educational counseling intervention model through long-term follow-up of clients seen in private practice. Effectiveness was measured by clients' commitment to and enjoyment of their chosen career paths and the relationship of these factors to adherence to program recommendations. Findings indicated that 65% of clients adhered to program recommendations. Those who adhered to program recommendations were significantly more committed to their careers; however, no significant difference was found in clients' enjoyment of their careers. Additionally, 85% of clients reported that the program met their needs, and 95% would recommend the program. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)
