New career Options for Counselors--Industrial Involvement.
Moore, S. Jerry; And Others
H. G. Wells pointed out that "human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe." In the next two decades we must rely even more on education, training, human resource development, and effective counseling to keep our commune of creatures working together with harmony and purpose. However, if counselors are going to be in a position to make this contribution, some significant changes in perspectives and perceptions must come about. To be successful agents of change in the future, counselors will find it necessary to join force with people in the world of work in a very direct and real sense. The new career options for counselors during the 1970's and l980's will be a shift from academic counseling in educational settings to a much more broadly-based counseling activity dealing with people of all ages in all walks of life and will be conducted in the classrooms of the real world, namely offices, factories, and homes where most of the people in our society work and live. The program explores some of the inroads that are already being made in industry and specifically details a program developed by the Smith-Carona Corporation in their laboratory facility in Cortland, N.Y.
