Proceedings Fourth Annual Conference of Guidance Personnel in Occupational Education.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Guidance.
Papers included in these proceedings are concerned with the following topics: (1) "What Do We Really Know About Career Development," (2) "Manpower Policy and Vocational Education;" (3) "How Guidance Services Should Grow in Occupational Education;" (4) "Links;" (5) "The Role for the Vocational Educational Counselors for the Decade Ahead;" and (6) "Reactor's Report." The conference attempted to create a primitive and figurative map of what needs to be accomplished, who can accomplish it, and what strategies need to be developed in occupational education. It reaffirmed that nearly all Americans have needs for the facilitation of career development. In order to meet such needs one must purposely examine: (1) the outcomes which vocational guidance and placement are intended to facilitate; (2) the processes by which persons attain such outcomes and factors which thwart or negate such development; (3) the preparation, competencies, and skills which must be possessed by those who facilitate the outcomes; (4) the potential contributions of different specialists; and (5) the technology or media which can strengthen the potential impact of these personnel.
