This information analysis paper reviews the literature on parent and family counseling, identified by a computer search of the ERIC data base from November 1966 through December 1979. An overview of parent and family counseling is followed by a presentation of basic issues, such as the counselor's role as a consultant to parents and teachers, working to improve learning climates, meet the needs of adolescent parents, and aid parents in providing sex education to their children. Programs designed to improve parent-child communication skills and provide greater understanding of educational and behavioral problems are described. Crisis counseling for substance abuse, grief counseling, group counseling for child abusers, marriage enrichment, and divorce are discussed. The impact of current economic, social, developmental, and educational trends is reviewed in terms of the role of parent and family counselors. The computer search of educational journals and ERIC documents is also provided with full reference citations. (NRB)
