Counselors' Invitational Conference on the Family and the Counselor in a Changing World.
Cockrum, Logan V.
This is the report of the proceedings of a conference designed to provide an opportunity for counselors, guidance directors, and others to share ideas and seek a better understanding of what is happening in family life and how this affects the counselor. The conference heard addresses by a sociologist whose major field of study is family life today and by a psychiatrist whose specialization is child psychiatry. Participants in the conference were then involved in small group work to facilitate a comparison of views from different perspectives on the changing family and the counselor's relation to that change. Small group leaders represented various fields and disciplines, including: public school guidance and counseling, technical school and personnel work, counselor education, state guidance services, mental health agencies, psychology, and medicine. Results of small group work were reported in a final panel discussion on "The Family and the Counselor". The major addresses, "The Changing Family in Today's World" and "Parent-Child Relations in Today's World", small group reports and panel discussion are reproduced as presented from tape recordings of the proceedings.
