Guidelines For Inservice Training. The Bartlesville System.
The author suggests that the best guidance programs are those which allow the professional counselor the largest amount of time for counseling. The use of computers in the field of guidance assists the counselors in information storage and retrieval and provides for individualized instruction. However, the use of computers will require specific training of new counselors as well as in-service training for those now in the field. Furthermore, information concerning the use of computers in the field of guidance is lacking. The major areas in which counselors need training so they may utilize the support of computers to better serve the needs of students include: (1) the learning of technical skills, (2) the introduction and acceptance of the program, (3) the counseling of students, (4) the planning of educational programs, and (5) the research and evaluation of guidance program objectives. Implications for future use of computers in the field of guidance are included. (JS)
