Description

The efficacy of a three-week career construction counselling group intervention that was structured using the My Career Story workbook [Savickas, M. L., & Hartung, P. J. (2012). My career story: An autobiographical workbook for life-career success.] was examined using a pre/post-test design. The group intervention was delivered within an urban high school largely comprising African American, Puerto Rican and Dominican students across two semesters. Both groups completed two pre/post-test measures of vocational identity and a career adaptability measure. Results indicated that the career construction intervention increased scores on measures of vocational identity and control and con?dence dimensions of career adaptability. Implications for career intervention with adolescents of colour and for future research are discussed.
