Programs and Practices in Adult Counseling.
Walz, Garry R.; Benjamin, Libby
This monograph is based on the authors' visits and communications with directors and staff, and presents an analysis of adult counseling programs operating in many sites around the nation. General characteristics of adult counseling centers are assessed in terms of start-up and funding, public relations and referrals, location, hours of operation, fee schedules, staff and training, clientele and services, and evaluation methods. Some unique activities are also identified for a few centers. Issues of concern to program developers are discussed and recommendations are made for improving and enhancing services for adults. This publication does not prescribe any universally applicable prescription for designing and delivering adult counseling services. (Author/KMF)
