Materials contained in the 16 volumes that make up the Rural America Series suggest practices through which rural schools can meet local community needs and realize their potential for career program delivery. This handbook for rural school counselors, one of five in subset C of the series, provides a basic rationale for career counseling and a program for its accomplishment in rural school systems. Both content and process for delivering individual counseling to each student are covered with focus on ongoing services the rural counselor can provide programmatically, starting with a goal statement and discussing how each of the guidance services interrelate. The following services are discussed in detail, including case examples and other materials: Individual inventory service, counseling interview service, information service, coordination and referral service, and evaluation and followup service. The career counseling component described also accounts for the time and resource constraints which the rural counselor faces. Appendixes contain review of constructs important in testing for guidance, criteria for classifying occupations, an occupational checklist, and occupational decisionmaking guidelines. (TA)
