Some Practical Remedies for Providing Vocational Guidance for Everyone.
Holland, John L.
After describing some current problems in vocational guidance and summarizing relevant knowledge and theory in the field, this paper presents some practical plans, materials, and ideas for providing more useful vocational assistance to people of all ages. The paper reviews such prominent vocational guidance approaches as vocational information and guidance systems, special programs for special populations, curricular materials, career education, and assorted assessment devices. The author believes that the understanding of careers requires both organizational and developmental strategies and models as bases for intervention. He employs student assessment, environmental assessment, and environmental redesign to formulate a high school vocational program with the following components: (1) placement and work experience service; (2) translation service; (3) environmental design service; (4) trouble-shooters; and (5) staff relationships. This plan can be easily modified for other age groups. (Author/LAA)
