Competency-Based Education for Guidance and Counseling Personnel: A Catalog of Programs and Competencies. Second Edition.
McBain, Susan, Comp.
This catalog, a revised expanded version of an earlier ERIC paper (ED 120 590), lists 36 educational programs and 38 sets of competencies required by guidance and counseling personnel. It is organized into two sections--educational programs and lists of competencies--each of which is further divided into five areas of classification based on client need: (1) Using Systematic Planning and Evaluation to Improve Career Guidance Programs; (2) Meeting the Career Needs Common to All Clients; (3) Meeting the Unique Career Needs of Special Target Groups; (4) Using and Evaluating Intervention Techniques (Direct and Indirect); and (5) Maintaining and Improving the Educational System and Environment. Each part also includes a sixth category, General Counselor Competencies, whose programs or competencies cut across the five areas listed above. For each educational program there is a general description and information on the format, contact person, outside resources, and program evaluation data. For each competency set, the format and contact person are also noted. The catalog concludes with alphabetical indices of programs, cross-referenced by titles and authors, and similar indices for competency sets. (Author)
