Developing a methodology for evaluating the impact of Career Guidance in the modern age

Childs, Roy (2019) Developing a methodology for evaluating the impact of Career Guidance in the modern age. (DoBPsych thesis), Kingston University, .

This thesis describes the process for developing a methodology for evaluating the impact of Career Guidance interventions. The first paper gives the results of a systematic literature review which set out to summarise the current range of methodologies published in peer reviewed journals since 1987. This identified the wide range of methodologies and outcome measures being used which made the it hard to compare and accumulate evidence. The recommendations that arose from the study were to develop a framework that could be used to guide and combine results from different studies together with the development of a measure that could be used as a benchmark by a wide range of researchers and practitioners. This led to an empirical study which involved the development of a potential benchmark measure which was then piloted on two very different samples to establish both its usability, acceptability, reliability and sensitivity.

This chapter focuses on the evaluation of career guidance programs, which is an important endeavour for practitioners as stakeholders often want information on the effectiveness of career guidance interventions. The authors first examine previous research related to the effects of career guidance programs or interventions with a discussion of the effectiveness of career guidance programs, which modalities are preferable in providing career guidance, which clients benefit from these interventions, and outcome measures that are typically used in the evaluation of career guidance programs. Second, the authors provide a summary of how to conduct an evaluation of a career guidance program. This overview utilizes the six-step process for evaluating career counselling programs proposed by Whiston and Brecheisen (Evaluating the effectiveness of adult career development programs. In: Niles SG (ed) Adult career development: concepts, issues, and practices, 3rd ed. National Career Development Association, Alexandria, pp 367–384, 2002). These six steps are (1) identify the focus of the evaluation; (2) formulate the evaluation design and procedures; (3) determine evaluation or outcome measures; (4) gather information; (5) data analyses and interpretation; and (6) methods for using the information.

Dencklau, Susan. "One Woman's Midlife Career Change| From Homemaker and Cosmetician to Public School Counselor." Thesis, University of Redlands, 2013.

This autoethnography focused on the following overarching question: How did I overcome the indoctrination and socialization in my early human development to accept the unexamined assumption that my life was limited to being a wife, mother, and cosmetologist that prevented me from aspiring to a career as a school counselor that would increase my sense of purpose in life using the framework of Erikson's stages of development and feminist thought as the theoretical lens for inquiry and analysis of my experience? Seven sub-questions were developed to guide the study. Analyzing the review of literature and my own experience related to the overarching question and sub-questions resulted in the emergence of twelve themes. These were socialization historicity, systemic societal power, freedom for self-determination, abandonment, sense of belonging, sense of responsibility, ethic of care, confidence, advocacy, personal transition, wounded healer, and authenticity . Erik Erikson's life stage theory, feminist theory and modern research comprised the theoretical framework for the study. Becoming an educational counselor at mid-life could only be told as one women's story, and this autoethnography provides just a small portion of what could be said about the experience.

Implications for practice and implications for future research were shared. The significance of the study was that it may help other females in their pursuit to understand their lives, help counselors in working with others, and contribute to the research on mid-life career change to become a school counselor.

Bullying is a serious problem that affects youth from all backgrounds and can negatively affect their development. The purpose of this project was to develop a program, identify potential funding resources, and write a grant to fund a bullying prevention program at Woodrow Wilson Middle School in Pasadena Unified School District. The proposed program will take a school-wide approach and implement Second Step, an evidence-based program to prevent bullying. Students will participate in classroom activities to build empathy, communication, bullying prevention, emotion management, and prevent substance abuse. Some enhancements such as assemblies, parent trainings, and incentives will be added to the program to promote collaboration between the school and the home and actively engage all of the systems related to bullying. Implications for social work practice are discussed. The actual submission and/or funding of the grant were not required for the successful completion of this project.

Title : Active carbons as nanoporous materials for solving of environmental problems

However, up to now, the main carriers of catalytic additives have been mineral sorbents: silica gels, alumogels. This is obviously due to the fact that they consist of pure homogeneous components SiO2 and Al2O3, respectively. It is generally known that impurities, especially the ash elements, are catalytic poisons that reduce the effectiveness of the catalyst. Therefore, carbon sorbents with 5-15% by weight of ash elements in their composition are not used in the above mentioned technologies. However, in such an important field as a gas-mask technique, carbon sorbents (active carbons) are carriers of catalytic additives, providing effective protection of a person against any types of potent poisonous substances (PPS). In ESPE “JSC "Neorganika" there has been developed the technology of unique ashless spherical carbon carrier-catalysts by the method of liquid forming of furfural copolymers with subsequent gas-vapor activation, brand PAC. Active carbons PAC have 100% qualitative characteristics of the three main properties of carbon sorbents: strength - 100%, the proportion of sorbing pores in the pore space – 100%, purity - 100% (ash content is close to zero). A particularly outstanding feature of active PAC carbons is their uniquely high mechanical compressive strength of 740 ± 40 MPa, which is 3-7 times larger than that of  such materials as granite, quartzite, electric coal, and is comparable to the value for cast iron - 400-1000 MPa. This allows the PAC to operate under severe conditions in moving and fluidized beds.  Obviously, it is time to actively develop catalysts based on PAC sorbents for oil refining, petrochemicals, gas processing and various technologies of organic synthesis.

Victor M. Mukhin was born in 1946 in the town of Orsk, Russia. In 1970 he graduated the Technological Institute in Leningrad. Victor M. Mukhin was directed to work to the scientific-industrial organization "Neorganika" (Elektrostal, Moscow region) where he is working during 47 years, at present as the head of the laboratory of carbon sorbents.     Victor M. Mukhin defended a Ph. D. thesis and a doctoral thesis at the Mendeleev University of Chemical Technology of Russia (in 1979 and 1997 accordingly). Professor of Mendeleev University of Chemical Technology of Russia. Scientific interests: production, investigation and application of active carbons, technological and ecological carbon-adsorptive processes, environmental protection, production of ecologically clean food.
