Abstract

We describe three Internet programs relevant to career counseling that have been developed at Arizona State University. These interactive interventions have evolved from earlier work on simulations and computer-based learning; however, they incorporate recent technological advances and more current psychological research in differential diagnosis and cognitive restructuring. They focus, respectively, on changing the irrational career beliefs and occupational stereotyping common among young women, educating parents on practices affecting the career outcomes of their children, and altering attributions relevant to the academic motivation and performance of at-risk youth.
