Development of Vocational Guidance and Placement Personnel for Western Metropolitan Areas. Final Report.
Gutcher, Dale G.; Blake, Margaret
This report discusses a week long institute (May 11-15, 1970) on vocational guidance that was held at Colorado State University and attended by 80 participants from 19 states and 52 cities. The institute dealt with 5 problem areas: (1) the need for counselors to reach disadvantaged persons in metropolitan areas; (2) the concern over improving vocational counseling competency; (3) the search for outside resources available to counseling professions; (4) the need to find methods of developing working relationships with business and industry; and (5) the desire for establishing methods of bringing the helping professions closer together. To deal with these 5 issues, the institute included guest speakers, group interaction, and field trips. Speeches are included. Based on a series of questionnaires completed by the participants, the institute directors found that the participants were favorably impressed with the institute, and, upon returning to their own institutions, were revising their career planning programs.
