Planning Models for Group Counseling.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Continuing Education Curriculum Development.
This publication provides planning models for counseling with groups of disadvantaged adults; the models are focused on the vocational success of the individual. The trainee is helped to perceive his role realistically and to plan his future place in society. Self-evaluation and planning for future employment are major themes running through the sessions. Through the sessions the counselor can teach significant items of information regarding work and self. Although this material is especially designed for adult groups preparing to enter the labor force, the techniques may be modified somewhat for use with non-college-bound secondary students. The materials do not constitute a sequential course of study, nor do they encompass all the problems encountered by the disadvantaged worker. Rather they are planning models that counselors will want to adapt to the needs of their own clientele and the local conditions prevailing in their area. (Author/EB)
