Hello Robin!

Thank you very much for your answers and references! I would appreciate a
lot if you could send me copies of what you have written about pcp and grids
used in vocational guiding.

I haven't done so much counseling yet, but my experiences so far are mainly
positive: the clients find the grid more useful than the standardized method
I use. They tell me that this is partly because the process of taking the
grid is useful, i.e. they have to think more about important aspects
(differences and similarities) of alternative occupations. Some report that
the grid results tells them what they already know and others report new
insights. Unfortunately, not all my clients have found the grid equally
useful, so I am trying to find better ways I can use it for vocational
guiding. So it will be interesting to read about how you use it and your
experiences with it!

Please send the copies to:
