Abstract/Description: This technical report documents the results from a quasi-experimental evaluation of the efficacy of Improving Your Career Thoughts: A Workbook for the Career Thoughts Inventory on college students’ acquisition of the skill of reframing dysfunctional career thoughts. Participants in this evaluation study were 86 undergraduate students enrolled in five sections of a career development course at a large southeastern university. A repeated measures ANOVA of effectiveness of reframed dysfunctional statements by initial level of dysfunctional career thinking and treatment status was conducted. A significant main effect and interaction between time and treatment status was found on an initial posttest measure. However, no effect or interaction was found for level of dysfunctional career thoughts on reframe effectiveness. At a two week, delayed posttest, a significant decay effect occurred for the treatment group. Furthermore, possible demand characteristics and treatment diffusion led to a significant improvement in the effectiveness of reframed thoughts of the control group.
