Managing the Life Cycle. Conference Proceedings and Commissioned Papers.
Salene, Dorothy H., Ed.; Jacobson, Marilyn D., Ed.
Examining the changing patterns in adult growth which alter family, learning, and work behaviors, the presentations collected here were given at a conference in which scholars, teachers, counselors, industrialists, and therapists met to explore the linkages between education and work throughout the life span. The edited transcripts are organized around four topics: individual's psychological makeup, the adult's development as learner, the adult's development as worker, and adjustments to changing roles. The three papers on psychological growth focus on gender and mid-life development, the latter half of life, and intergenerational communication. One paper on the adult as learner focuses on broad conceptual framework, the other on the particulars of current theories. Seven papers focus on the adult worker: labor market and life cycle needs, middle-aged worker and career change, role of the intermediary, labor market linkages (federal manpower programs), government intervention, a consumer's guide to labor market information, and managing your career. The final two papers examine the changing roles of women, one describing the "new" woman, the other examining some myths about working women. (JT)
