Diverse Dimensions of a Two-Year College Guidance Program.
Blai, Boris
The guidance program at Harcum Junior College, a two-year, private, independent college for women, is incorporated into its educational programming. The measurement and interpretation of student placement test information is an essential component of the guidance function, as it assists students in making decisions and examining their progress in reference to their aspirations and goals, and it offers important information to assist faculty guidance advisors in counseling students. The comprehensive guidance service at Harcum embraces the following dimensions: (1) testing the reading ability, critical thinking, study habits, and personality of freshmen; (2) individual counseling regarding social, personal, and educational/vocational problems; (3) a rotating counselor available during evenings; (4) group counseling; (5) a team approach to counseling; (6) special interest speakers; (7) referral to outside agencies; (8) the Peer Resources Program; and (9) the Career Resources Center. All counseling personnel are provided with information on typical problems, and with suggestions for making interviews more fruitful--ways to put the counselee at ease, ways of winning confidence, and ways of best conducting interviews. (The Career Resources Center and its importance, and eleven paths to emotional maturity are discussed in detail.) (MB)
