A Model for Developing and Operating an Adult Career Guidance Center.
Erickson, Richard L., Ed.; Olp, Georgia, Ed.
This manual was developed with the express purpose of assisting a potential career information center director through the initial stage of program development. It is intended that this manual be used by a university-trained counselor. It will help him/her to function as an administrator, select staff including paraprofessional counselors, and provide competent training and supervision of staff. The manual is divided into three major sections. The first presents an administrative overview: rationale, philosophy, program establishment, personnel, and paraprofessionals. The second discusses training principles and the use of paraprofessionals. The third section handles support information: forms, homework assignments, assessment instruments, materials and media, references, and computerized information sources. (Author/JLL)
