Counselor's Handbook: I, Counselor's Interviewing Guides in Individual Appraisal; II, Counselee Appraisal Patterns Related to Fields of Work.
Bureau of Employment Security (DOL), Washington, DC.
Part I includes guides for appraising individual characteristics such as interests, temperament, educational development, and aptitudes, to help the counselee learn about himself. Part II includes guidelines for appraising individual characteristics as they relate to the 18 fields of work (occupational clusters) which help the counselee learn about the world of work. Some of the occupational clusters are: (1) engineering and related, (2) clerical, (3) service, (4) mechanical and electrical, and (5) graphic arts. Comparable information in capsule form is given in the "Counselor's Desk Aid" (VT006 359), which also includes sample forms for use with individual counselees. The Branch of Counseling and Testing Services developed the "Counselor's Handbook" and the "Counselor's Desk Aid" for the use of employment counselors in state employment offices, but it should also be useful to vocational counselors in other settings such as schools and rehabilitation agencies.
