Report on Career Counseling In-Service Course and Short Practicum to Expand Counseling and Testing Capabilities of Nassau County Guidance Counselors (VEA 74-6-752) and Pre-BOCES Career Counseling (VEA 74-6-754).
Nassau County Board of Cooperative Educational Services, Westbury, NY.
This is a report of a training course for guidance counselors. Nine counselors and 27 students participated in the program. The counselors administered various tests such as the Kuder, Holland, and ICL tests; they had individual interviews with the students, organized discussion groups, and showed films to the students. At the end of the three-day program, counselors held a general discussion of the results obtained, and the training program was evaluated by both the counselors and the students. All counselors, and most of the students, were very pleased about their experience and said they benefited from it. The directors of the training program conclude that home-school guidance staffs should be trained in career counseling and should know that instruments are available for vocational appraisal. The general consensus was that a one-day practicum with students was too short and that it should be extended into a three-day session. The report contains a detailed schedule of the three-day program; of the instruments, scales, and films used; and also various checklists and questionnaires. (SE)
