Decision-Making Strategies for College Students
Morey, Janis T.; Dansereau, Donald F.
Journal of College Counseling, v13 n2 p155-168 Fall 2010
College students' decision making is often less than optimal and sometimes leads to negative consequences. The effectiveness of two strategies for improving student decision making--node-link mapping and social perspective taking (SPT)--are examined. Participants using SPT were significantly better able to evaluate decision options and develop plans, suggesting that college counselors might increase the effectiveness of students' decision making by presenting a simple SPT strategy. (Contains 1 table and 3 figures.)
