This symposium was the first international meeting to study the place of information, guidance and counseling services in adult learning. The report suggests guidelines for all concerned with the development of their nations and societies through programs for adult education. It opens with a discussion on socio-economic, political-cultural patterns and assumptions and then presents materials dealing with the relevance and dissemination of research. Papers which cover the evolution of peer counseling, information services for older people, group counseling for women and a counselor training curriculum are also included. A bibliography of directories and manuals, and a participant list are included. (BP)
