Career Guidance for Adults: Focus on Women and Ethnic Minorities: A Planning Manual and Catalog of Programs.
Harrison, Laurie R.
The document contains two major sections: a 210-page catalog of viable approaches to adult career planning and development, preceded by a 25-page manual designed to facilitate use of the catalog and also to assist in planning or improving adult career guidance programs. The manual provides guidelines to five major activities (determine local needs, review catalog approaches for ideas, develop implementation procedures, implement the program, and evaluate the program) which are discussed in detail. The catalog section contains detailed descriptions of career guidance programs for adults, which were selected after a national search. Programs are grouped into four main sections, treating programs for women, ethnic minorities, mid-career changes, and other target populations (rural residents, prisoners, handicapped, veterans, general adult audiences, and senior citizens and retired persons). The lengthy descriptions cover: program goals; program size and target population; year started; staffing; facilities, materials, and equipment; major features; and evaluation. (SA)
