A structured 10-didactic unit intervention was devised to foster adolescents’ time perspective and career decidedness.

Abstract

A structured 10-didactic unit intervention was devised to foster adolescents’ time perspective and career decidedness. The study was conducted with 50 adolescents who were selected from a group of 624; 25 of the participants were randomly as- signed to the control group and 25 were assigned to the experimental group. They were selected according to their level of career indecision and poor propensity to look to the future. A series of repeated measure analyses of variance were carried out to evaluate pre- and posttest differences between the experimental and control groups regarding time perspective and career decidedness. At posttest, the experi- mental group showed higher levels of continuity, hope, and career decidedness than did the control group. Implications for future practice and research are discussed.
