Abstract

This document contains a report of a Master's level counselling internship conducted at the Memorial University counselling Centre in partial fulfillment of a Master's of Education program in Educational Psychology. The internship was of 12 weeks duration and ran from May 9, to August 5, 1994. -- Chapter 1 discusses the internship option and rationale, outlines the internship goals, and describes the internship setting. Supervision and evaluation of the intern are also outlined along with confidentiality issues and ethical considerations. -- Chapter 2 deals with the actual counselling and professional activities conducted during the internship. It describes the individual counselling conducted, including concerns of clients and issues addressed. Specific counselling sessions are highlighted to provide insight into the intern's growth and development. Other related activities reviewed include medical interviewing skills training, Career Planning Centre involvement, and internship related readings. -- Chapter 3 presents the intern's research into Career Indecision. The first section includes the purpose, rationale, definitions, significance of previous findings, hypotheses and research questions, limitations, delimitations, and a literature review. The methodology section outlines the sample, instrumentation, procedure, analysis, consents, and safeguards. The data were analyzed in an empirical and descriptive fashion, and described career indecision as related to various contextual and demographic factors. The results were further analyzed, using two popular subtypes of career indecision, namely that of the undecided and indecisive career clients. -- Results consistently found that the Career Planning Centre service was related to lower career indecision in analyzing subtypes, a significant difference was found in the identified uncertain group when they received individual career counselling at the MUN Counselling Centre; however, this service was related to higher indecision scores. The descriptive analysis suggested two underlying causes of career indecision, which were in the areas of employment availability and program availability and eligibility. These factors were given (the descriptor of Market Driven Indecision. Recommendations were made for both Memorial University counselling Centre Services and future research into the area of career indecision.
