Interim Report of New York State Guidance Center for Women for Period November 1, 1967 to March 31, 1968.
Westervelt, Esther M.
The New York State Guidance Center for Women in Suffern, New York provides individual counseling and vocational and educational information. During the months covered by this report, the Center cosponsored a conference on continuing education for women in the two-year colleges of the State University, began a second series of career information radio programs, and planned a seven-session Career Opportunities Workshop. Twenty-eight percent of the clients receiving counseling and testing during this period were from disadvantaged groups, compared with five percent previously. A pilot evaluation of the individual counseling done at the Center was undertaken to help the staff prepare for larger scale evaluation to be carried on in July 1968. Projected research includes comparisons of the usefulness of the Strong Vocational Interest Blanks for women and men, and studies of personal and demographic characteristics which may distinguish clients who use counseling and testing effectively from those who do not, and of selected psychological and social processes related to the difficulties women experience in enlarging their activities beyond the home. The Center has applied to the American Board of Counseling Services for accreditation. (aj)
