Home-career conflict reduction and the level of career interest in women

Helen S. Farmer, Martin J. Bohn

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Administered the SVIB for Women twice to each of 50 working, 25 married, and 25 single women: 1st with standard instructions, and 2nd with experimental home-career conflict reducing instructions. It was predicted that (a) scores of Career scales would increase and scores of Home scales would decrease after the experimental instructions, and (b) that married/single status would not be a significant variable in the effect of home-career conflict reduction. Both hypotheses were substantiated (p < .05). It is concluded that the level of vocational interest in women, irrespective of their married/single status, would be raised if home-career conflict were reduced. (19 ref.)
