Preparing Counselors for the College Placement Service: A Training Manual.
Burks, Herbert M., Jr.; And Others
This training manual resulted from a project whose purposes were to demonstrate; (1) the feasibility of providing career counseling by specially trained graduate assistants as part of the college placement service; and (2) that such counseling can be provided as effectively and more efficiently in a group setting than in a one-to-one setting. Part I describes the rationale and utility of the Systematic Counseling model. Part II describes the resources and organizational format for the training program, including physical facilities, staff, materials, equipment, and time format. Part III, the major part of the manual, gives a day-by-day description of the 5 day instructional program. Part IV contains a description of the outcomes of the training program as perceived by both trainee and staff. The manual concludes with separate lists of references for each of the major content areas: college placement, individual counseling, and group counseling. Distinctions are made between references sent to the trainee for advance reading and those made available during the training program, and between required and recommended reading. (Authors/TA)
