Pointers on Guidance and Counseling Programs.
Williams, Calvin E.
This paper assumes five basic functions for the community college guidance and counseling program: (1) applicant consulting (interpreting test results, introducing career planning, aiding the student in course selection, and explaining curricular requirements); (2) student advisement (scheduling students, explaining Senior College requirements and appraising students of special supportive services); (3) group orientation (teaching study skills courses, providing occupational information, and orienting students to all aspects of college life); (4) student counseling (conducting interviews, making appropriate referrals, administering and interpreting tests, values clarification and health counseling; and (5) disseminating career information. It then analyzes three methods--innovation, relevancy, and accountability--which can be used to create a dynamic guidance department at the community college level. (Author)
