Life Career Guidance: A Manual for Counselor Educators.
McCowan, Richard J., Ed.; Cramer, Stanley H., Ed.
Developed by participants in a counselor educator conference, this manual is designed to provide performance-based life career counseling instructional materials for vocational counselor training. Two introductory chapters present a brief description of the genesis and evolution on the concept of life career counseling and a model for evaluating a competency-based teacher or counselor education program. The seven major sections are career information, theory, placement, interpersonal, instructional planning, utilization of local resources, and evaluation. (Competencies identified through a literature search were edited and classified into these areas.) Each competency is developed into an instructional activity which is structured in the basic format: (1) statement of competency; (2) suggested instructional procedures; (3) assessment procedures, conditions, criteria, and recommended assessor; and (4) resources. Materials in the appendixes include a directory of publishers of commercial educational, occupational, and career development materials and/or tools; a listing of sources of free occupational information; recommended competencies of the pupil personnel administrator and director or supervisor of guidance; list of conference participants; competency worksheet examples and editorial suggestions; and directors of regional institutes.
