The Role of Counseling in an Associate Degree in Labor Studies Program: Counseling in a Work Oriented Setting (The Importance of Including Counseling Courses within the Curriculum of the Associate Degree in Labor Studies Program at the Community College Level).
Kingery, Bruce
This research had a two-fold purpose: (1) to assess the need for a labor studies program at the community college level; and (2) to consider the advisability of including within such a curriculum a cross-section of adult/family/worker-oriented counseling and guidance courses. The study employed a questionnaire completed by union delegates, which was designed to assess their educational interests. Specifically, the survey determined their interest in lab studies, earning an associate degree in labor studies, various content areas such as union administration and collective bargaining, and in areas of guidance and counseling such as youth counseling and social services availability. The results demonstrated significant interest in pursuing coursework in both labor studies and guidance and counseling. The incorporation of counseling courses within a labor studies program was thus provided support. (SJL)
