Counseling Women for Life Decisions. Searchlight Plus: Relevant Resources in High Interest Areas. 27+.
This review of the literature related to counseling women, based on a computer search of the ERIC database, emphasizes the need for decision-making skills to cope with social change and the women's movement. The influence of locus of control on decision-making is reviewed along with theories about motivational factors for women and students. Role perception, role conflicts, multiple roles, life satisfaction, midlife career changes, and reentry problems are discussed, and programs designed to cope with these changes are described. Implications for counselors are also suggested. The document concludes with the actual annotated computer search used for the literature review. (JAC)
