Turning Things Around for Personal and Career Success Presentation


Published on

Praise by Concordia University-St. Paul students/faculty for presentation of brief 18-slide version to students in 'Turning Points' class of probation students. Framed in the context of personal and career success incorporating Self-Determination Theory. In-class activities included students pointing out self-limiting career choices, using a drawn graph on whiteboard of Gottfredson’s Theory (male/female, prestige and education levels, plus tolerable effort). Encouraged recognition of cultural/societal influencers, especially exploring career decision-making as shaped by saliency factors of family of origin, community and related. Also, students interacted in naming and discussing each of the SWOT responses in an analysis. In a full-version of these slides, I’d break into Modules for 4 topics. Students would be introduced to Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) intervention targeting underlying beliefs and reframing distorted thinking and negative self-talk. PPT version includes hyperlinks for each image to anchor webpages. Hoping to add audio / visual script for accessibility to the presentation, as time permits in the future. Would plan to use Adobe Captivate, since HTML5 enables iPads to access.
