COUNSELOR DEVELOPMENT IN AMERICAN SOCIETY, CONFERENCE RECOMMENDATIONS FROM INVITATIONAL CONFERENCE ON GOVERNMENT-UNIVERSITY RELATIONS IN THE PROFESSIONAL PREPARATION AND EMPLOYMENT OF COUNSELORS (WASHINGTON, D.C., JUNE 2-3, 1965).
MCGOWEN, JOHN F.; AND OTHERS
THE CONFERENCE WAS ATTENDED BY APPROXIMATELY 110 TOP LEVEL REPRESENTATIVES OF THE FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT, UNIVERSITIES AND COLLEGES, AND AGENCIES EMPLOYING COUNSELORS. FIVE CURRENT PROBLEM AREAS OF SIGNIFICANCE AND COMMON CONCERN IN GOVERNMENT AND UNIVERSITY RELATIONS WERE STUDIED--(1) PROJECTING THE TOTAL QUANTITY OF COUNSELING PERSONNEL REQUIRED IN OUR SOCIETY, (2) DETERMINING ACCEPTABLE AND JUSTIFIABLE ROLES, FUNCTIONS, AND QUALIFICATIONS FOR COUNSELING PERSONNEL, (3) MEETING GOVERNMENT PROGRAM NEEDS WHILE STILL PRESERVING NECESSARY AND REASONABLE PROFESSIONAL AUTONOMY, (4) DEVELOPING NEEDED LEGISLATIVE AUTHORIZATION, FINANCIAL SUPPORT, AND COMPLEMENTARY UNIVERSITY ORGANIZATION TO IMPLEMENT INTEGRATED PROGRAMS OF EDUCATION FOR COUNSELING PERSONNEL, AND (5) IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF COUNSELING SERVICES, AND FACILITATING THE RECRUITMENT AND RETENTION OF COMPETENT COUNSELING PERSONNEL THROUGH APPROPRIATE MODIFICATIONS OF EMPLOYMENT CONDITIONS. NINE WORK-STUDY PAPERS INCLUDED IN THIS REPORT WERE PREPARED BY RECOGNIZED AUTHORITIES TO PROVIDE THE CONFEREES WITH BASIC AND CURRENT BACKGROUND MATERIALS. ONE OF THE MANY RECOMMENDATIONS WAS THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ESTABLISH AND MAINTAIN A NATIONAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON COUNSELING MANPOWER. (PS)
