Counseling for Women's Roles in the 1980's.
The increasing momentum of research on women's roles, education, and career accomplishments and an appreciation of the rapidity of social change suggest the exploration of male attitudes concerning women's roles, life planning approach appropriate for the 1980's, possible life patterns, and counselor training for advising girls and women. Little study has been made of the attitudes of husbands, employers, and educators toward the variety of life patterns and choices for women but there is some slight indication that younger men take a more sympathetic view toward wives' continuing education. Counseling for girls and women should encompass the educational, vocational, avocational, community, and family aspects of the total life span. Life patterns for women in the 1980's will include such activities as community service, continuing education, specialized professional work, or conduct of a business endeavor. Training for counselors of women might be incorporated in a specialized course, seminar, or workshop combined with supervised experience. (pt)
