The "Adult Development" and "Adult Career Development" sections review pertinent theories and research (basic concepts, task model, transition model, theme model, adult career stages, career anchors approach, career development and planning programs). The "Career Programs and Practices for Adult Workers" section discusses factors contributing to the development of employer-sponsored career programs; an analysis of the delegation of responsibility for the development and ongoing implementation of such programs; descriptive information on current practices and programs; and future perspectives. In the appendix, case studies are presented that include overviews of career development programs within specific settings (Anheuser-Busch; Bache Halsey Stuart and Shield, Inc.; Disneyland; General Electric; Goddard Space Flight Center; Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories; Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University). References and a selected bibliography are included. (CT)
