Symposium on Youth: Their Values, Goals, and Career Concepts. Third Monograph.
Mancuso, James C.; And Others
This monograph contains papers presented at a symposium on the values, goals and career concepts of youth. The first article discusses cognitive personality theory which maintains that all behavior is a judgmental process carried out upon stimuli which impinge upon the organism. Major issues in general behavior theory are presented followed by a discussion of how these issues might be regarded within a cognitive theory approach. The second paper brings to bear some of the recent conceptions and findings from the area of person perception to the understanding of perception of self with attention focused on ways in which such ideas can be relevant to the work of college counselors. The next paper deals with the application of some social learning concepts to an analysis of some salient problems in our society. It is concerned with the following four areas in which our society has built into it serious culture conflicts: education, occupation, and recreation; love and marriage; friendship and social acceptance; and morality. The last article presents an overview of student personnel services in Georgia's Area Vocational Technical Schools. (RSM)
