Abstract

The objective of this quasi-experimental research was to investigate the effectiveness of psycho-educational group counseling on career awareness and self-concept among normal students and students with special needs. This research also studied the relationship between career awareness and self-concept among students. A total of 40 students comprising of both normal students (n = 21) and students with special needs (n = 19) were randomly selected as subjects for this study. These subjects were divided into 4 groups separating normal students from students with special needs. About 11 normal students and 10 students with special needs formed the 2 treatment groups that were provided with the psycho-educational group counseling while 10 normal students and 9 students with special needs formed the 2 control groups that did not receive the psycho educational group counseling. The data from this study was analysed using the t-test, one way ANOVA and Pearson correlation test at 0.05 significant level. The results from this study showed that the psycho-educational group counseling is able to increase the level of career awareness and self-concept among the subjects. The findings from this research showed that psycho-educational group counseling is an effective method of increasing career awareness and self-concept among normal students and students with special needs in the secondary level.
