Constructivism and Career Decision Self-Efficacy for Asian Americans and African Americans
Grier-Reed, Tabitha; Ganuza, Zoila M.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v89 n2 p200-205 Spr 2011
Career development that adequately addresses the needs of multicultural students is important. The authors explored whether a constructivist career course might be a viable mechanism for improving career decision self-efficacy for 81 Asian American and African American college students. Results indicated significant increases in all 5 elements of career decision self-efficacy: self-appraisal, occupational information, goal selection, planning, and problem solving. Hence, constructivism shows potential as a way to integrate multicultural and career competencies in the classroom.
