Cottingham, Harold F., Ed.
The papers which comprise this book are directly related to the conceptualization of elementary guidance and were all written between 1958 and 1968. The wide range of topics deals with the following: (1) prevention of difficulties through elementary school guidance; (2) contemporary societal pressures on elementary school children and the role of counselors; (3) the nature, purpose, objectives, scope of, and need for, elementary guidance services; (4) the realities confronting elementary guidance; (5) suggested principles and foundations; (6) historical and prospective elementary guidance models; and (7) research voids in elementary school guidance. The book concludes with a brief look at some future concerns facing the elementary guidance movement, and specified three areas: (1) underlying assumptions and conditions; (2) personnel and procedures; and (3) programming for elementary guidance activities.
