Evaluation of a Career Development Skills Intervention with Adolescents Living in an Inner City
Turner, Sherri L.; Conkel, Julia L.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v88 n4 p457-465 Fall 2010
The authors evaluated the effectiveness of an intervention with adolescents living in an inner city that was based on the Integrative Contextual Model of Career Development (Lapan, 2004). Adolescent participants reported greater efficacy and positive self-attributions and greater skills in person-environment fit; social, prosocial, and work readiness; the garnering of emotional and instrumental support; and self-regulated learning. Adolescents who participated in a more traditional career counseling model only reported greater emotional support than did adolescents not receiving career counseling.
