Women at Work: A Counselor's Sourcebook.
Farmer, Helen S.; Backer, Thomas E.
This book is designed to complement current literature dealing with the vocational counseling of women. The purpose of the book is to provide counselors with timely information regarding: (1) career opportunities for women in fields traditionally dominated by men; (2) legal rights of women in the world of work; (3) counseling strategies and techniques, particularly as related to the woman's role of homemaker/worker; and (4) current social science research on working women. Particular attention has been given to certain subgroups of women including reentry women, black women, widows, and divorcees. A secondary purpose of the book is to provide suggestions for sex-free counseling procedures such as identification of personal bias, use of occupational information to increase career options open to women, techniques of stereotypic attitude change, and teaching decision-making and problem-solving skills. Included are a list of references, appendices, subtopic titles, and charts and tables. (HLM)
