PLACE: Guided Steps to Employment Readiness. Counsellor's Manual.
Thomas, Robert E.; Rosove, Bruce
This counselor's manual provides step-by-step information on the use and administration of PLACE, a diagnostic and prescriptive aid in employment counseling, with clients. (Client materials are available separately.) It is divided into two "books." Book 1 contains materials concerning PLACE as a whole. Chapter 1 overviews PLACE, its purposes, settings, methods of administration and counselor's role. Chapter 2 considers the make-up of PLACE: a model of employability, components (four workbooks, four sourcebooks, and directory), and definitions of topics. Chapter 3 focuses on the PLACE process. Identifying clients who can benefit from PLACE is the topic of chapter 4. Suggestions for using PLACE with groups is discussed in chapter 5. Book 2 of the manual describes Parts A/B, C, D, and E of PLACE. Separate chapters contain a description of the use of each part with clients and reference material on the relevant employability topics. Topics of the four parts are Identifying Your Occupation/Fitting the Requirements, Getting the Job, Doing Well on the Job, and Personal Needs. Appendixes include a Solution Planning Guide to help clients identify, assess, and choose solutions to employment problems; suggested background reading; and a paper, "Client-Focused Counselling Objectives."
