Career Education Implications for Counselors. Monographs on Career Education.
The set of four papers contained in this monograph focus on the counselor's importance in implementing a career education effort. The first paper, "Career Education: Challenges for Counselors," proposes a set of suggested changes in role and functions for school counselors. While covering a wide range of activities, it centers attention on the key importance of the counselor as a member of the career education "team." The second article, "Career Education and Counselor Education," addresses the problem of finding and focusing on an appropriate response to career education on the part of counselor education. A number of alternative actions counselor educators might consider for collaborating with career education are suggested. In the third article, "Career Guidance, Career Education, and Vocational Education," an attempt is made to conceptualize differences among these three concepts. The paper suggests that, while career education needs professional counselors, it is neither a synonym nor a substitute for career guidance. The final paper, "The Role of Career Counseling and Placement in the College and University," addresses counseling in the college and university setting. General implications for change are discussed. (TA)
