A Model for an Adult Growth and Development Center.
Schmidt, George Richard
This thesis presents a model for an Adult Growth and Development Center predicated on preventive/educational counseling for the issues and tasks of adulthood. The model is described in terms of information from three data bases: (1) a review and synthesis of various adult development theories; (2) a review of the literature on outreach programs; and (3) a pilot field survey of organizations providing services to the adult population. The programs for preventive/educational counseling for adult development are considered in terms of general life skills and specific careers, i.e., social and civic career, marriage, family, occupation, and leisure. Within each of these careers, the programs are examined in terms of the tasks and issues of the adult developmental periods of different theorists. (Author)
