Methods and Materials of Vocational Counselling. Instructional Manual. 2nd Edition.
Thomas, Robert E.
This instructional manual provides an approach and planned sequence for teaching a course on methods and materials of vocational counseling. (The course is intended for counselors who are relatively new to the field of vocational counseling or who need to become acquainted with newly developed tools in the field.) Covered first are tools and programs for use in self-assessment to identify suitable occupations and in occupational exploration. The PLACE system, a system that fulfills the employment readiness stage of the career counseling progression, is described. Set forth next are the methods and materials of the Creative Job Search Technique. Two additional programs--one a computerized self-assessment system called CHOICES and the other a curriculum-based vocational counseling program called Creating a Career--are discussed. Each unit on a particular tool or program contains the following: a description of the tool or program; tool or program components; information to be gained from the given source; and an instructional plan that includes a unit objective, materials and preparation required, and instructions for implementing learning activities. Appended are section and final tests and a course outline. (MN)
