PSYR 8208 - Career Assessment and Intervention


(5 cr.) Students in this course are provided with practical skills in career and vocational assessment. Students can administer, score, and interpret printed and computer-based assessments of career interests, beliefs, and values. Major sources of career and work information available on the Internet and through printed materials and computer-based guidance systems will be examined. Emphasis is placed on helping students gain functional knowledge of how career assessment can assist in the exploration and understanding of the interrelationship among work, family, and life roles. Students will learn how to integrate career development theory and assessment results with career counseling interventions. Current issues in career counseling and assessment will be discussed, with particular attention paid to computer-based applications and multicultural implications. This course is provided in-residence, which means that students divide their time between online activities and activities completed in-residence, with the majority of the instruction occurring face-to-face during the in-residence class meetings.
