Occupational Information in Guidance Practice Viewed in the Perspectiveof Vocational Development Theory and Research by Henry Borow( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Systematic examination of the counselee as a purposive, goal-seeking, learning organism is advocated. When occupational information is given to a counselee, it is filtered through phychological sets, attitudes, preconceptions, and defenses. Vocational guidance must selectively borrow from related behavioral sciences. Since 1950, a reconceptualization of guidance has taken place. Children acquire value systems which influence their choice of occupations. Junior high students have limited and questionable information about occupation and are not ready for counseling about specific vocational choices. Work has little meaning for disadvantaged youth. American youth is estranged from occupational life, and develops biases against work fields. Improved occupational information usage may include--(1) elementary counseling, (2) orientation to work in elementary school, and (3) experimental work on the effect of attitudes and emotional states on perception. (This document was presented at the conference on occupational information and vocational guidance, pittsburgh, pennsylvania, march 11-13, 1966). (sk)

Environmental Differentials of Occupational Programs and EducationalCareer Patterns in Public Junior Colleges by Henry Borow( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the final report of a project initiated in September 1965 to: (1) determine and measure the environmental factors and the social-psychological characteristics of students which are related to the success or failure of occupational programs; and (2) to identify a variety of typical educational career patterns and to isolate teams of predictor variables (environmental, community, personal, and socioeconomic) by which educational career patterns may be significantly differentiated. A battery of tests, inventories and rating scales was administered to 10,857 students in 24 colleges; 9,610 students (89 percent) submitted complete and scorable records. The student data profile was generated through administration of the Junior College Student Inventory and a 15-scale inventory of preferred conditions and rewards of work (Work Values Inventory). Data on environmental influences was gained from a set of four Junior College Environment Scales, a pair of Faculty Preference Scales, and a series of 13 Community Characteristics Indices. A variety of statistical treatments was applied to study variable interactions and their relationships to student program choice, educational career patterns, program completion, and postcollege employment status. Results are described and pertinent literature is reviewed. Sections of the survey instruments are appended. (Author/DC)
