The Draft and Counseling.
Kincaid, Marylou
A rationale is presented for why counselors need to become involved in draft counseling. The author discusses five basic reasons why draft counseling should be offered and then considers a number of examples which indicate the kinds of problems which young draft-age men face: anxiety, moral dilemma, family pressures, self image, etc. The professional counselor's crucial role in the area of draft counseling is viewed as threefold: (1) establishing its legitimacy; (2) receiving training and then training others; and (3) working with the exceptionally difficult referrals. The question of values is briefly considered. The author's recommendations concerning the professional counselor and draft counseling conclude the paper. (TL)
