Abstract

The study was designed to determine if a 20 hour workshop would facilitate the decision-making of 20 career women who were experiencing difficulty in deciding whether or not to have children. Significant differences among participants' attitudes, feelings and inclinations towards parenthood were not found from the pre- to post-program measure; however, 42% of the women in the workshop made a decision regarding parenting by the program's conclusion. Personality test scores of the women who chose to have children, the women who chose not to have children, and the women who remained undecided did not differentiate among the groups.
