TRAINING INSTITUTE FOR VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING PERSONNEL.
WELLMAN, FRANK E.
A MULTIDISCIPLINARY TRAINING INSTITUTE WAS PROVIDED FOR A SELECT GROUP OF 40 STATE AND LOCAL VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING PERSONNEL EMPLOYED IN LEADERSHIP POSITIONS. THE DESIGN OF THE INSTITUTE EMPHASIZED THE DEVELOPMENT OF UNDERSTANDINGS, KNOWLEDGES, AND PROFESSIONAL MATERIALS RELATED TO (1) ECONOMIC FACTORS INFLUENCING VOCATIONAL EDUCATION NEEDS AND THE VOCATIONAL DECISION-MAKING PROCESS, (2) SOCIAL AND CULTURAL FACTORS OF VOCATIONAL COUNSELING, (3) PSYCHOLOGICAL FACTORS RELATED TO CAREER DEVELOPMENT AND VOCATIONAL CHOICES, AND (4) ADMINISTRATIVE CONSIDERATIONS IN THE EVALUATION OF MULTIDISCIPLINARY FACTORS IN VOCATIONAL PROGRAM ORGANIZATION AS WELL AS IN THE COORDINATION OF GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING ACTIVITIES AT ALL ORGANIZATIONAL LEVELS. THE FORMAT OF THE INSTITUTE PROVIDED FOR 30 HOURS OF SCHEDULED ACTIVITIES IN EACH OF 4 WEEKS. ONE-HALF OF THIS TIME WAS DEVOTED TO LECTURE AND DISCUSSION OF THE DIMENSIONS OF VOCATIONAL COUNSELING IN THE FOUR AREAS OF ECONOMICS, SOCIOLOGY, PSYCHOLOGY, AND ADMINISTRATION. THE BALANCE OF THE TIME WAS DEVOTED TO SMALL-GROUP WORK SESSIONS IN THE PREPARATION OF PROFESSIONAL WORKING PAPERS ON ASSIGNED TOPICS RELATED TO THE MAJOR AREAS. THE OVERALL EVALUATION OF THE INSTITUTE BY THE TRAINEES AND THE STAFF WAS FAVORABLE TO THE MULTIDISCIPLINARY CURRICULUM APPROACH USED AND TO THE HIGH DEGREE OF TRAINEE INVOLVEMENT WHICH THE INSTITUTE'S FORMAT REQUIRED. A FOLLOWUP WAS RECOMMENDED TO DETERMINE THE LONG-TERM TRAINING EFFECTIVENESS. A RELATED REPORT IS AA 000 050. (JH)
