SOARES, Dulce Helena Penna; KRAWULSKI, Edite; DIAS, Maria Sara de Lima  and  D'AVILA, Geruza T.. Vocational guidance: an experience at a popular preparation course for the university entrance examination. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2007, vol.27, n.4, pp.746-759. ISSN 1414-9893.

The present article reports a vocational guidance (VG) activity carried out at a popular course for the university entrance examination (pré-vestibular). The objectives were to make the students aware of the choice of an undergraduation course, to potentialize the expression of feelings in relation to `vestibular' and in relation to the course itself and to promote the integration among the students. The methodology used was based on psychodrama, which involved group debates mediated by the production of posts. The methodology aimed at potentializing the free expression of feelings that are hidden due to `vestibular' and due to the behavioral condition of the students who attended the aforementioned course. The instruments used allowed better identification and integration among the students as well as the awareness of the process of choosing a university course. It was also possible to assist the students by the recognition of the needs derived from that behavioral condition making them ready to choose the university course and the `vestibular' process, and also for their integration and identification with the group they belonged to at that moment.

Keywords : Vocational guidance (VG); Vocational choice; Anxiety; University entrance examination.
