    1. Chapter 4 Career Decision Making

    2. Presentation Overview • Importance of knowing how to make good decisions • Kinds of decision makers • Career decision-making styles • Problems in making decisions • CASVE cycle • Improving decision-making skills

    3. Decision Making Is Important • Indicator of our effectiveness in life • Long-term implications of some decisions • Others evaluate us by the way we make decisions • As well as the outcomes of our decisions

    4. Kinds of Decision Makers • Decided • Undecided • Indecisive

    5. Problems in Decision Making • Personal • Family • Society

    6. Problem solving Removing a Gap Thinking or processing information 4 steps: CASV Decision making Broader concept Includes additional CASVE steps: adds E and revisits C Feelings & behaviors Decision Making vs. Problem Solving

    7. Pyramid of Information Processing Domains Thinking about my decision making Knowing how I make decisions Knowing about myself Knowing about my options

    8. CASVE Cycle C E A V S

    9. CASVE Cycle Communication Execution Analysis Valuing Synthesis

    10. CASVE Cycle CommunicationIdentifying theproblem - the gap Execution Taking action to narrow the gap AnalysisThinking about alternatives Valuing Prioritizingalternatives Synthesis Generating likely alternatives

    11. CASVE Cycle Communication Execution Analysis Synthesis Valuing

    12. Communication • Becoming aware of the gap • Discomfort becomes greater than fear of change • Assistance sought when resources are inadequate

    13. Communication External conditions: 1) Event 2) Significant others

    14. Communication Internal conditions: 1) Emotions 2) Avoidance behavior 3) Physiological state

    15. CASVE Cycle Communication Execution Analysis Valuing Synthesis

    16. Analysis • Clarify self-knowledge related to the gap • Clarify occupational knowledge related to the gap • Understanding how I make important decisions • Understanding how my thinking influences choices

    17. Analysis Clarify self-knowledge • What do I want? • What have I learned from past experience, e.g., family, tests, etc.? • What are my values, interests, and skills?

    18. Analysis Clarify occupational knowledge • What do I know about occupations or fields of study? • Do I have an effective schema for understanding the world-of-work?

    19. Analysis Understanding how I make important decisions: - Willingness to accept responsibility - Decision-making and learning styles

    20. Analysis Understanding how positive and negative thinking influences career choices • Self-awareness of how thoughts influence feelings and behavior

    21. CASVE Cycle Communication Execution Analysis Valuing Synthesis

    22. Synthesis What can I do to solve the gap? Goal: Avoid missing alternatives, while not becoming overwhelmed with options

    23. Synthesis Elaboration: Identify all possible options Crystallization: Narrow potential options to 3-5

    24. CASVE Cycle Communication Execution Analysis Valuing Synthesis

    25. Valuing Judge the costs and benefits of each option to: 1) Oneself 2) Significant others, e.g., family 3) Cultural group 4) Community and/or society at large

    26. Valuing What is a first choice and back-up choices? What is the best choice for me and others?

    27. Valuing A first option is selected to narrow the gap identified in the Communication phase

    28. CASVE Cycle Communication Execution Analysis Valuing Synthesis

    29. Execution • Final phase involving converting thoughts into action • Formulate a goal and execute a plan for implementing a first choice • Three activities: Planning, Trying out, Applying • For example, create a plan for reality testing in full-time or volunteer work; take classes or training

    30. CASVE Cycle Communication Execution Analysis Valuing Synthesis

    31. Communication Review external demands and internal states • Has the gap been closed? • Have the negative emotions and physiological states improved? • Am I taking action to achieve my goal?

    32. CASVE Cycle Knowing I Need to Make a Choice Knowing I Made aGood Choice ImplementingMy Choice Understanding Myself and My Options Choosing anOccupation orProgram of Study Expanding andNarrowing My Listof Options

    33. Improving Career Decision Making • Understanding the process • It is an ongoing process, not an event • Problems in one phase can shut down or derail the entire problem-solving process • Specifically, in the Communication, Valuing, and Execution phases • The process is a skill that can become almost automatic with continued practice and use • Remember: career problems are continuous, and you will likely repeat the cycle many times

    34. Improving Career Decision Making • Improving Decision-Making Skills • Completing assessment instruments • Example: Career Thoughts Inventory (CTI) • Use guides/worksheets • Guide to Good Decision Making, Appendix F • Observing other successful decision makers • Conduct information interviews, read biographies • Reflect upon the steps in your own CASVE cycle
