SUMMER INSTITUTE FOR VOCATIONAL COUNSELING AND GUIDANCE PERSONNEL (FITCHBURG, MASSACHUSETTS, NOVEMBER 28, 1966).
COOKE, LOT H., JR.; MORINE, JOHN P.
THIRTY-FOUR PUBLIC SCHOOL GUIDANCE COUNSELORS FROM SIX NEW ENGLAND STATES, NEW YORK, AND NEW JERSEY PARTICIPATED IN AN INSTITUTE TO BECOME ACQUAINTED WITH THE PROBLEMS AND SPECIAL TECHNIQUES INVOLVED IN COUNSELING THE URBAN DISADVANTAGED STUDENT. THE PROGRAM CONSISTED OF LECTURES BY OUTSTANDING AUTHORITIES IN THE FIELD, LIMITED DISCUSSION PERIODS, VISITS TO LOCAL INDUSTRY AND VOCATIONAL SCHOOLS, AND ACTUAL PRACTICE IN TECHNIQUES SUCH AS JOB ANALYSIS. THIRTY-THREE PARTICIPANTS RESPONDED TO A QUESTIONNAIRE WHICH REQUESTED THEIR REACTIONS TO THE INSTITUTE. IN GENERAL, THE PARTICIPANTS FELT THAT THEY HAD RECEIVED MUCH BENEFIT FROM THE INSTITUTE, BUT CLAIMED THAT IT HAD FEATURED TOO MANY LECTURES, LEFT TOO LITTLE TIME FOR DISCUSSION AND PRACTICE, AND LEFT THEM SKETCHILY PREPARED TO ACTUALLY EMPLOY THE NEW TECHNIQUES IN SCHOOL SITUATIONS. THE BACKGROUND OF THE INSTITUTE, PURPOSES, METHODS OR PROCEDURES, AND RESULTS ARE DISCUSSED. A LIST OF LECTURERS, INSTITUTE ACTIVITY SCHEDULE, PARTICIPANT APPLICATION FORM, QUESTIONNAIRE FORM, AND A TABLE OF QUESTIONNAIRE RESULTS ARE GIVEN IN THE APPENDIX. (PS)
