NEW DIRECTIONS IN VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE.
WILSON, PHYLLIS C.
AN INSTITUTE FOR COUNSELOR EDUCATION WAS CONDUCTED TO PROVIDE COUNSELOR EDUCATORS WITH NEW KNOWLEDGE OF EMPLOYMENT TRENDS AND MAJOR ISSUES IN THE WORLD OF WORK. THIS INFORMATION WOULD ASSIST THEM IN ARRIVING AT AN INITIAL STATEMENT OF CRITERIA TO BE MET IN REVISING VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE TO MEET CURRENT NEEDS. REPRESENTATIVES FROM GOVERNMENT, INDUSTRY, LABOR, AND COUNSELOR EDUCATION GAVE PRESENTATIONS WHICH WERE FOLLOWED BY GROUP DISCUSSIONS. THE COUNSELOR EDUCATORS CONCLUDED--(1) THAT SOME EDUCATIONAL AND VOCATIONAL CHOICE IS POSSIBLE FOR EVERYONE AND THE ABILITY TO CHOOSE IS A PRECIOUS FREEDOM, (2) THAT EDUCATIONAL AND VOCATIONAL PLANNING MUST COMMAND THE MAJOR ATTENTION OF SCHOOL COUNSELORS AND GUIDANCE WORKERS, (3) THAT COUNSELORS AND GUIDANCE WORKERS MUST BE BETTER TRAINED THAN THEY NOW ARE, (4) THAT COUNSELOR EDUCATORS HAVE FAILED TO COME TO GRIPS WITH TWO MAJOR ISSUES--THE PLACE OF EDUCATIONAL AND OCCUPATIONAL INFORMATION IN GUIDANCE AND HOW VOCATIONAL COUNSELORS CAN HELP MEET THE NEED FOR MORE TALENTED AND BETTER EDUCATED WORKERS, AND (5) THAT COUNSELOR EDUCATORS NEED HELP FROM EXPERTS IN RELATED ACADEMIC AND PROFESSIONAL FIELDS.
