  4. 4. Assessment Procedures & Protocol• The Gemstone Adventure- “GEMSTONES™, developed by DREAM, Inc. is a tool for all populations that promotes the understanding of self and others. It identifies six different learning, teaching and social interactive styles. GEMSTONES™ is a model based on research from Hippocrates through Carl Jung and correlated to such respected measures as the Myers-Briggs Personality Inventory.”1• Careers for Me Junior- “The Junior version was designed to expand a child’s horizon in the world-of-work. It is a bright, colorful 6-panel folder with a picture for every interest on the assessment. Students circle the pictures which represent what they like to do. Pictures are counted (up to seven for each job cluster). The student then circles any career that is of interest to them, whether it is in their high-cluster or not. A very short and simple “research” panel is provided to begin the process of learning about specific careers. And, of course, there are fun activities which combines learning and fun.”21Reference: 2Reference:

  10. 10. Summary of Findings• The Gemstone Adventure – By assessing the clients personality traits we can learn about her “GEM” characteristics (positive) such as being creative and her “GEMnasty” characteristics (negative) such as misinterpreting feelings. This can help the client understand more about herself and become aware of some characteristics that might not be beneficial. – The client’s parents and teachers can also learn more about the client• Career’s for Me Junior – The client has strong interest in careers associated with business and art – She found the careers of a hotel manager, artist, and dancer to be interesting – The client scored lowest in environmental and agricultural systems cluster
  11. 11. Treatment Plans & Recommendations• According to the personality assessment used, the client can move from positive to negative characteristics when teachers and parents allow the following: have time by herself, help her to make her plans happen, give the client a lot of time to do things, listen to her ideas and thoughts, don’t make the client do regular routine things, appreciate that she is one of a kind.• By assessing career interest it shows that the client is less interested in math and science subjects. The parents and teacher of the client can try to make these subjects more interesting such as doing a family science project or eating a pizza to discuss math.
