This monographs discusses outplacement counseling (the process of helping a terminated employee secure new employment) in business and industry and in higher education. The first section, outplacement in business and industry, describes the emergence of outplacement services and discusses benefits and problems associated with the service. The processes involved in outplacement, i.e., helping the terminated employee adjust to termination, develop new career goals, and secure an appropriate new job, are detailed. In addition, an outline for a 3-day outplacement workshop for the business and industry setting is presented as well as a six-page annotated bibliography. The second section discusses outplacement in higher education, focusing on its usefulness for faculty career development. The Virginia Tech Comprehensive Education-Based Career Development Model is presented along with a report on faculty experience with the model. A four-page biliography concludes the section. Section 3 is a discussion of means to ensure the quality and effectiveness of outplacement services. (JAC)
