Implications of Career Development Theory and Research for Counselor Education.
Columbia Univ., New York, NY. Teachers College.
In an attempt to bridge the gap between the newly emerging knowledge of career development and the technology of vocational counseling, a workshop was conducted for the purpose of disseminating the recent advances in career development to a group of university professors engaged in counselor education. The major presentations, printed here, consisted of: (1) recent methods of modifying traditional teaching-learning relationships; (2) recent findings from the career pattern study; (3) recent developments and prospects in occupational fact mediation; (4) sociological aspects of career development; (5) the psychology of time utilization; (6) recent findings collected by the American College Testing Program and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation; and (7) the disadvantaged and vocational development. The presentations and the deliberations of the participants resulted in attempts to translate the many facets of career development theory and research into implications for counselor education. The first set of implications is expressed in a group of essential understandings that are highly recommended for inclusion in all counselor training programs. The second set of implications takes the form of detailed suggestions for incorporating the understandings in training programs for counselors. (Author/IM)
