Summary

The major purpose of this project was to develop a computerized vocational counseling program consisting of an interactive computer package and a filmstrip series for use by unemployed/underemployed adults, handicapped persons, and prison inmates. Specific project objectives were to (1) determine clients' vocational counseling needs, (2) develop an occupational information computer package, (3) develop user guides and sound-filmstrips for using occupational information and for developing employability skills, (4) field test the program, and (5) assess users' reactions to the program. Based on a needs assessment of potential users, a master computer package was developed for four types of computers. A filmstrip series, accompanying audio tapes, and user's guide were developed to assist individuals in developing basic employability skills. Also, a self-instructional guide for using the computerized package was developed. In Tennessee, a population of unemployed/underemployed adults, handicapped persons, and prison inmates field tested the developed vocational counseling program. Inservice training on the use of the program was provided to counselors and others assisting users. Evaluation data collected from program users revealed that the vocational program was favorably received by users. Users increased their knowledge of the world of work significantly through the use of the program. (Author/CSS)
