REPORT OF THE INTERAGENCY TASK FORCE ON COUNSELING.
GREGORY, FRANCIS A.; AND OTHERS
COUNSELORS NEED PROJECTIONS OBTAINED FROM VARIOUS FEDERAL AGENCIES FAR EXCEED THE CURRENT AND PROJECTED SUPPLY UNDER EXISTING CONDITIONS. TO MEET THIS NEED, IT IS NECESSARY TO--(1) RECRUIT AND TRAIN MORE COUNSELORS, (2) PREPARE COUNSELORS FOR NEW DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES, (3) MAKE MAXIMUM USE OF PRESENTLY EMPLOYED COUNSELORS, AND (4) PROVIDE MORE TRAINING FOR PRESENTLY EMPLOYED COUNSELORS WITHOUT COMPLETE PROFESSIONAL PREPARATION. THIS PROGRAM CAN BE MOST EFFECTIVELY IMPLEMENTED BY COORDINATION BETWEEN FEDERAL AGENCIES AND APPROPRIATE PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS. FOR THE NEXT FEW YEARS, FUNDING FOR EXPANSION WILL COME LARGELY FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. WHILE IMMEDIATE AND VAST EXPANSION IS NOT FEASIBLE, EXISTING PROGRAMS SHOULD BE STRENGTHENED AND NEW PROGRAMS INITIATED. LEGISLATION TO SUPPORT GRADUATE, FIRST YEAR COUNSELOR TRAINING IS ADVOCATED. THIS LEGISLATION SHOULD SUPPORT TRAINING AND DEMONSTRATION PROGRAMS INVOLVING SUPPORT PERSONNEL. SUPPORT PERSONNEL, UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF PROFESSIONAL COUNSELORS, RANGE FROM CLERICAL ASSISTANTS TO SPECIALIZED TECHNICIANS. RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT NEEDS IN COUNSELING ARE EXAMINED. SUGGESTIONS FOR PARTICULAR RESEARCH PROJECTS ARE MADE AND THE NEED FOR COLLECTION, CLASSIFICATION, AND DISSEMINATION OF INFORMATION ON COUNSELING RESEARCH AND PRACTICE IS EXPLORED. (SK)
