Innovations in Counseling.
Van Atta, Ralph E., Ed.
Society is changing, so are students, and so must counselors and counseling. In the papers collected in this monograph, there is none which does not reflect a changing perception of the counselor and his function. Douglas Heath, in his keynote paper, "But Are They Educable?," is emphatic in suggesting counselors should stop counseling individuals and instead attempt to influence curriculum and community environment. Appel and Haak, using decision-making theory as a springboard, attack key assumptions which underly vocational education decision-oriented counseling. "Innovations in Counseling Teachers", Brown and Fuller suggest that counselors, if given a choice, should get out of the business of counseling with individual students and into the business of counseling teachers. Hall, in his article on video-tape, hypothesizes that total feedback on counseling would make for more accurate assessments than partial feedback (audio or video alone) in supervision. In her report on alcoholic parents, Vincent discusses recruiting clients and the results of this. Van Atta's paper, "Child Rearing and Creativity" presents an almost operant model of how creative behavior is developed. (Author/KJ)
