Career Education and Career Guidance Perspectives on Relationships and Implementation. Proceedings of the Annual Summer Institute for Guidance Leadership (3rd, University Park, Pennsylvania, July 21-25, 1980).
Herr, Edwin L., Ed.; And Others
This document reports the proceedings of a five-day workshop for guidance leadership personnel--including local directors of guidance and pupil personnel services, career education coordinators, state department of education specialists and counselor educators--in Pennsylvania. The focus of the Institute was on the relationships between career education and career guidance, the planning and management of such interaction, and methods of meeting the needs of selected special populations. During the many presentations and group discussions, particular attention was given to such topics as (1) national and state legislation, policy and trends in youth employment, Comprehensive Employment and Training Act, career education and career guidance; (2) international approaches to career education and career guidance; (3) comprehensive models of career guidance/career education program interaction; (4) contrasts and relationships between career education, career guidance, and vocational education; (5) models of collaboration between the school and the community in career education; (6) career education and planning with mentally retarded and other special needs populations; (7) equity and reduction of sex bias in career education and career guidance; (8) career education and planning for minority youth; and (9) career development theory in career education and career guidance. Conclusions drawn from the Institute and recommendations for career education and career guidance leadership complete the document. (KC)
