Guidance Services in Adult Education Programs; A Leadership Monograph.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Bureau of Adult Education.
This guide provides an in-depth description of guidance and counseling as they relate to adult education. One major theme stressed is that guidance is an integral part of adult education, serving students by facilitating their learning and self-fulfillment. Topics covered are the concept of guidance within adult education and the adult education counselor's attributes, training and experience; the support staff which assists the guidance counselor--administrators, teachers, paraprofessionals, peer counselors, and the clerical staff; and staff development. The actual scope of services includes the counselor's role in student recruitment, consideration of the student's needs, record security and confidentiality, group dynamics, information services, relationships with other school personnel, job placement services, community agencies and referral resources, and actual student advocacy. Research and evaluation, including the related topic of needs assessment, are also examined. (LS)
