CONFERENCE SUMMARY--FROM THEORY TO PRACTICE. THE DESCRIPTION AND DEMONSTRATION OF A GUIDANCE PROGRAM IN ONE DISTRICT K-12.
Palo Alto Unified School District, CA.
VARIOUS ASPECTS OF THE PALO ALTO GUIDANCE PROGRAM WERE PRESENTED AT THE CONFERENCE. THE OBJECTIVES OF THE PROGRAM WERE BASED ON THE BELIEF THAT GUIDANCE SHOULD FOSTER INDIVIDUALIZATION IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF ALL CHILDREN BY PROVIDING CONDITIONS WHICH WOULD ENSURE THIS INDIVIDUALIZATION. THESE TWO THEORETICAL CONSTRUCTS, REINFORCEMENT THEORY AND DECISION-MAKING PROCESS, HAVE DIRECTLY AFFECTED THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE PALO ALTO GUIDANCE PROGRAM, AND HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO ITS FRAMEWORK. THE ABSTRACTS PRESENTED, WHICH DESCRIBE PARTICULARS OF THE PROGRAM, CAN BE DIVIDED INTO THREE GENERAL CATEGORIES--(1) THE ROLE AND FUNCTION OF GUIDANCE WORKERS, (2) SOME GUIDANCE PROGRAMS AND PRACTICES, AND (3) RESEARCH AND EVALUATION ACTIVITIES. THE CONCLUDING SECTION EXAMINES AREAS OF FUTURE CONCERN. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE PALO ALTO GUIDANCE CONFERENCE (PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA, JANUARY 20, 1968). (CG)
