This compilation of readings pertaining to vocational guidance is designed to provide counselors in a number of settings with access to articles that will complement standard information sources. Part 1 explores various approaches to the nature of work, while Part 2 focuses on society's dimensions of work with consequent implications for guidance. Part 3 presents some key readings on theories of vocational guidance by Super, Holland, Tiedeman, Roe, and others. Parts 4 and 5 take up procedures for guidance, including information, general guidance, and counseling procedures. Part 6 contains articles which reflect the continuing process of vocational development from the elementary through the college level. Parts 7 and 8 discuss vocational guidance and career development of the disadvantaged and women, and Part 9 discusses the continuing needs in adult vocational guidance and career development. Each section is introduced by a brief overview and is concluded by a bibliography of related information. (SB)
