Contemporary Perspectives on Individual Counseling and Complementary Strategies.
Wolleat, Patricia L., Ed.
This compilation of papers, presented at the 1974 Summer Workshop in Guidance and Counseling at the University of Wisconsin, Madison represents a variety of approaches related to individual counseling and supporting strategies. Farwell provides a rationale for the primacy of the individual counseling function within the total counseling and guidance program. Eherenman's approach to the interpretation of school records to children highlights one way in which the "integration" goal of Farwell may be achieved. Hosford, writing from the perspective of behaviorism, links the behavioral philosophy and method to the goals of self-development. On a more practical level, the papers by Dilley and Thompson outline intervention strategies which may be used individually or in groups to facilitate affective development both within the counseling function and the broader educational context. Wolleat argues for greater concern on the part of school counselors for the unique needs of girls and women. Where we are now with the conceptualization and methodology of counseling as described by the former authors may not be where we will be in the future. Pulvino's article provides a glimpse of the future as he examines the implications for counselors of a number of discoveries related to levels of consciousness and psychic energy. (Author/HMV)
