Abstract

This study set out to organize and apply a group program designed to resolve the psychological career barriers of university freshmen and test its effects on their psychological career barriers, self-efficacy in career decision-making, and self-determination. For this purpose, the investigator divided the subjects into a treatment group of eight and a comparison group of nine, implemented a group program designed to resolve psychological career barriers over seven sessions, and applied no treatment to the comparison group. In an effort to examine the program's effects, the investigator conducted tests on psychological career barriers, self-efficacy in career decision-making, and self-determination in the pre- and post-test both in the treatment and comparison groups and examined the differences between them. The findings were as follows: first, the treatment group made a significant decrease to its psychological career barriers scores compared to the comparison group; second, the treatment group made a significant increase to its self-efficacy in career decision-making scores compared to the comparison group; and finally, the treatment group also made a significant increase to its self-determination scores compared to the comparison group with a significant enhancement. That is, the program was effective for lowering the psychological career barriers of university freshmen and improving their self-efficacy in career decision-making and self-determination. The study also discusses the utilization of its findings and future study.
