MURPHY, GLADYS
THE CHANGES WHICH ARE TAKING PLACE IN THE LIVES OF WOMEN, THEIR RELATIONSHIP TO THE LABOR FORCE, AND THE GREAT NEED IN OUR NATION FOR THE FULL UTILIZATION OF BOTH MANPOWER AND WOMANPOWER ALL DICTATE THE NECESSITY FOR WISE AND SOUND VOCATIONAL COUNSELING. TO IMPLEMENT THIS CONCEPT, COUNSELING AND GUIDANCE PERSONNEL FROM SEVEN MIDWESTERN STATES, CHAIRMEN OF THE GOVERNORS' COMMISSIONS ON THE STATUS OF WOMEN FROM FIVE STATES AND REPRESENTATIVES FROM NATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ATTENDED A CONFERENCE WHICH HAD AS SPECIFIC PURPOSES -- (1) TO DEVELOP MORE REALISTIC VOCATIONAL COUNSELING FOR GIRLS, (2) TO KEEP SCHOOL COUNSELORS UP-TO-DATE ON EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR WOMEN AND CHANGES IN THE LABOR MARKET, AND (3) TO DEVELOP LEADERSHIP TO CARRY FORWARD STATE CONFERENCES. MAJOR SPEECHES WERE "FACING THE FACTS ABOUT WOMEN'S LIVES TODAY" BY MARY KEYSERLING, AND "COUNSELING TODAY'S GIRLS FOR TOMORROW'S WOMANHOOD" BY ESTHER WESTERVELT. WORKSHOP GROUPS DISCUSSED (1) THE EFFECT OF PARENTAL INFLUENCE, THE CURRICULUM, TEACHERS' ATTITUDES, AND "THE FEMININE ROLE", (2) THE INTEGRATION OF RESPONSIBILITIES, (3) THE PROBLEM OF ECONOMIC NEED, AND (4) THE RESTRICTION OF CAREER CHOICES AND THE COUNSELOR'S EFFECT ON CAREER CHOICE. A SYNTHESIS OF THE WORKSHOP REPORTS AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR COUNSELORS, COUNSELOR-EDUCATION PROGRAMS, AND OTHER ORGANIZATIONS IS PRESENTED.
