Counseling Women for Nontraditional Careers.
Smith, Walter S.; And Others
This monograph presents an overview of the employment situation in regard to women, describes trends occurring in women's career choices, and presents five hypotheses, with suggestions for accompanying activities, from which counselors may choose in counseling women for nontraditional careers. The five alternative hypotheses are as follows: (1) women need special remediation to overcome deficiencies such as math inability; (2) women need to be sold on the appropriateness of certain careers for a woman; (3) women need to learn how to accommodate their career and other adult roles; (4) women need to become assertive career pursuers; and/or (5) women must learn to deal with discriminatory barriers to their nontraditional career pursuit. An extensive resource list, divided into separate sections for easy reference, is also provided for readers who wish to explore beyond the information presented here. (Author)
