Programs of Career Guidance, Counseling, Placement, Follow-Up and Follow-Through. A Futures Perspective. Information Series No. 107.
Drier, Harry N.
A career development content model for organizing, developing, and implementing future career guidance programs is presented in this information analysis paper intended for guidance counselors and directors, program planners, and vocational educators. The model addresses such issues as self, economic, societal, leisure and avocational, and attitude and value understandings necessary for life-role decisionmaking which results in life-role planning, securing, and maintenance over the life span. Critical features of planning necessary to assure that local career guidance programs are in fact designed, developed, tested, and delivered to meet specific career development needs of the people they are to serve are discussed in the area of each process step including the following: planning (initial planning, local data-based planning, planning for local career guidance and counseling, activity tryout and implementation test), career development, needs assessment (individual and group), resources for guidance, goals and objectives, new career guidance practices (home-centered guidance, subject and nonsubject-matter-based guidance and counseling, and community centered guidance), placement (labor exchange models, client-centered models, client-advocate models), follow-through, evaluation, community relations and involvement, staff development, and attitudes toward guidance. A summary of recommendations for career guidance program, future change, and brief projections on counselor role in the near future are included. (TA)
