Expanding Vocational Horizons--A Training Manual for Pre-Service Counselors.
Indiana Univ., Bloomington. Dept. of Counseling and Guidance.
Intending to offer an innovative approach to preservice training of school counselors, this training manual follows a developmental process which includes activities (primarily interaction exercises) whose purpose is to raise trainee awareness, challenge and revise trainee attitudes while encouraging understanding of the attitudes of adolescent girls towards vocational education, and encourage action by trainees while acquainting them with the present state and implications of vocational education opportunities for women. Designers of the manual have addressed the problem of low enrollment of women in vocational education by focussing on the secondary school counselor's role in guidance activity. They suggest that counselors should (1) prepare the way for an "identity crisis"; (2) not be "realistic" when counseling women, and (3) remove sources of sex-role stereotyping in schools. The manual provides an adaptable framework for the counselor educator to use in workshop or class format, with each activity described in detail, followed by relevant printed materials. A bibliography of additional resources appears at the end of each of the three sections headed Awareness, Attitudes, and Actions; audio-visual materials are listed, and an appendix gives suggested projects for providing a coordinated, supervised program for on-the-job use in primary, intermediate, or any grade levels.
