Development of Vocational Guidance and Placement Personnel for Rural Areas. Institute VII, Final Report.
Brobst, Harry K.
Institute VII was planned to focus on (1) the present status of vocational counseling programs and facilities for students in predominantly rural areas, (2) problems and characteristics of rural youth which make them different from non-rural youth, (3) orientation and training that counselors who work with rural youth should possess, and (4) steps to develop more effective and more innovative counseling and placement services and procedures for implementing those steps. In keeping with this, the program consisted of 2 formal lectures presented by nationally known individuals. One lecture was concerned with the present status of vocational counseling in predominantly rural areas; the other dealt with the role and preparation of the counselor to meet the needs of rural youth in a changing world. Two panel discussions were also presented. One was concerned with the problems and characteristics of rural youth; the other dealt with how vocational counseling and guidance services for rural youth could be improved. A series of group sessions was conducted dealing with issues raised in the lectures and the panel discussions. Institute methods and procedures, the formal presentations, and summaries of panel discussions and group reports are included in this document. (JH)
