Toward a New Criterion For Evaluation of Guidance Programs.
Tate, Douglass T.
This paper points to the demands which our "new society" is making upon guidance and counseling programs; demands which must be met as counselors become agents of change and the profession turns from exclusive concern with intra and interpersonal matters to exteriorceptive concerns. The author gives a brief historical outline of the emerging guidance profession in order to provide insight into the problems of evaluation and to point out the current need for a new definition of the situation with its advanced technology, urban concentrations, and aspiring minority groups. Finally, the paper looks at the youth of today, its values and its aspirations. Special attention is given to females and the part they will play in the labor force of the future. The author feels that the goal of present and future counseling programs must be to create a more humane environment, which gives support to the legitimate aspirations of its people, through peaceful institutional and social change.
