Counseling Mature Women from Differing Cultures.
Marple, Betty Lou
This paper presents a survey of the available research on the counseling of women. It incorporates the findings of a sample of women's indications about their needs, goals, attitudes, and where they received or failed to receive counseling in the educational-vocational decision-making process. The writers found that the empirical research tends to deal with feminine stereotypes rather than with changing realities. The authors believe that further work is needed in understanding the use of the Strong Vocational Interest Blank for Women for Counseling, in light of changing life styles for women. The authors also noted that certain writers are working with new trends in feminine life styles which are bringing about changes in women's educational and vocational development. They hope that these will lead to changes in the counseling that women receive, making it more commensurate with their needs. (Author/WS)
