CAPS Capsule. Fall 1969. Volume 3. Number 1.
Lee, Pam, Ed.
The Fall, 1969 issue of CAPS Capsule discusses personnel services in other countries. C. Gilbert Wren indicates that the cultural emphasis on personal worth and independence determines the degree of acceptance of counseling services. Outside the United States, society is not person-oriented. National pride and jealousy inhibit foreign counselors trained in the United States from peer acceptance at home. Dr. Wren points up the need to develop training programs adaptable to other cultural bases. Specifically discussed are: "Counseling Services in Europe," by Edwin H. Olson; "Counseling Services in Latin America," by Joseph D. Bentley; and "Counseling Services in England," by Donald Blocher. These three articles address themselves to the following points on counseling services: (1) effect of cultural variables, (2) current status, and (3) possible implications for the United States. Also included are annotated listings of ERIC documents on international guidance and innovative programs in personnel services; a presentation by Garry R. Walz, Center Director, on a June conference at Cambridge entitled, "Computer-Assisted Systems in Guidance and Education;" information on CAPS products, and listings of Center activities. (CJ)
