Career Guidance: Strategies for Developing and Implementing Career Guidance, Counseling, and Placement Programs in Arizona.
McKinnon, Byron E., Ed.; And Others
The handbook, prepared by counselor practitioners from experiences based upon involvement in guidance-oriented career education programs, is intended to help the counselor who wants to start or fit within a program of career education. Using narrative and numerous illustrations, the book first presents a definition of career guidance in terms of career development ans its five interacting themes (understanding myself and others, understanding the world, obraining skills and experience, problem-solving style, and achieving identity). Next, the four components of the systems approach (planning, structuring, implementing, and making decisions based on program outcomes), a program alternative operating in Arizona, are described and graphically portrayed. This section includes an annotated resource list of available elementary, junior high, and senior high school materials and Title III Training Packages. The salient points of another alternative, the consultant approach, are outlined and pictured, including a list of available resources. Career placement programs are briefly discussed. Brief descriptions of four other career guidance-oriented projects in Arizona conclude the handbook. (Author/MS)
