Community-Based Educational and Career Information and Counseling Services for the Adult Public.
Comly, Lucy T.
A working paper for the study on "The Education of Adults in New York in the Last Quarter of the Twentieth Century," the report is directed to the provision of educational/career information/career counseling services for the adult public. The paper is intended to stimulate discussion on the topic at the State and national level. The main purposes of the report are: (1) to describe the types of services now available; (2) to identify the need for such services; (3) to define the problems, needed research, and policy issues involved in providing the services; and (4) to identify alternative solutions. Discussion covers: the need for information and counseling services (as evidenced by survey data, reports by educational commissions, individual response to services, and Federal government and private foundation financial support); various possible support services for providing educational information and counseling services (a statewide educational resource data bank, the licensing of counselors and charting of counseling agencies, and a resource and planning center); staffing of counseling services; training programs for counselors of adults; and the cost and funding of these services. A chart in the appendix lists and describes existing counseling services throughout New York State. (EA)
