REPORT OF A RESEARCH CONFERENCE ON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL GUIDANCE.
SMITH, STELLA
A CONFERENCE WAS CONVENED IN ORDER TO (1) REVIEW CURRENT AND COMPLETED RESEARCH, (2) DEVELOP GUIDELINES FOR FUTURE RESEARCH, AND (3) GENERATE NEW RESEARCH IDEAS AND DEVELOP PLANS FOR STIMULATING RESEARCH RELATING TO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL GUIDANCE. THE CONFERENCE WAS HELD AT SOUTHERN STATE COLLEGE, MAGNOLIA, ARKANSAS, NOVEMBER 10-13, 1965. PROFESSIONAL SCHOOL GUIDANCE WORKERS WERE FACED WITH INTERPRETING THEIR IDEAS IN TERMS THAT WERE INTELLIGIBLE TO ANTHROPOLOGISTS, PEDIATRICIANS, SOCIAL WORKERS, ELEMENTARY SCHOOL EDUCATORS, PSYCHOLOGISTS, AND MANY OTHER RELATED DISCIPLINES. IN SPITE OF THE PROBLEM OF COMMUNICATION AMONG THE SEVERAL PROFESSIONAL DISCIPLINES AND THE LIMITED TIME ALLOTMENT, SEVERAL SIGNIFICANT RESEARCH NEEDS WERE IDENTIFIED. WHILE THE PARTICIPANTS AGREED THAT GUIDANCE PROGRAMS WILL HAVE TO BE ADAPTED TO LOCAL NEEDS AND CONDITIONS, SOME BASIC PRACTICES AND PROCEDURES SHOULD BE RESEARCHED FOR THE PURPOSE OF FORMULATING SPECIFIC RECOMMENDATIONS FOR IMPROVING THE ACTIVITIES OF COUNSELORS AND DEVELOPING APPROPRIATE PERSONNEL TRAINING PROGRAMS. THE NEED FOR ADDITIONAL CONFERENCES OF THIS NATURE WAS MADE APPARENT BOTH BY THE REACTION OF THE PARTICIPANTS AND THE LIST OF TOPICS SUGGESTED FOR INVESTIGATION. APPENDIXES INCLUDED THE KEYNOTE ADDRESS "GUIDANCE COUNSELING FROM THE DEVELOPMENTAL POINT OF VIEW" BY L.B. AMES AND THE GENERAL SESSION ADDRESS "RESEARCH DESIGNS--COOPERATIVE RESEARCH GRANTS NOW AVAILABLE--COOPERATIVE RESEARCH PROJECTS RELATED TO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL GUIDANCE" BY R.H. BEEZER. (GC)
