DANTAS, Marilda Aparecida  and  AZZI, Roberta Gurgel. Report on an intervention experiment from the perspective of social cognitive career theory. Temas psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.26, n.2, pp. 735-749. ISSN 1413-389X.

This quasi-experimental designed work investigated the effects of an intervention focused on the exploration and planning of the professional/academic future of public high school students. This intervention was based on Social Cognitive Theory of Career and intermediated by the book O Futuro está Logo Ali, Elpídio - Entre nesta Conversa sobre Pensar o que Vem Adiante. The investigation happened through analyses of occupational self-efficacy of formation, and students occupational interests. There were a pre and a post-test. One hundred sixty-six students participated. They go to the second year of high school in two public schools in São Paulo State. The materials used were the instruments: (a) characterization questionnaire and (b) the Occupational Self-Efficacy of formation and occupational interests Scale. It was conducted in a collective way, through periodic meetings at the schools and with the teachers' support. The results of the correlations analyses (Spearman) between occupational self-efficacy of formation and occupational interests indicated similarities between the categorizations of occupations for both groups, having the experimental group presented more correlations. The results brought contributions to support life projects as to career planning of public high school students, guided by the Social Cognitive Theory of Career.
