Career Education for Behaviorally Disordered Students.
Fink, Albert H., Ed.; Kokaska, Charles J., Ed.
Ten papers address topics in career education for students with behavior disorders. W. Morse points out "Problems and Promises," including problems with the definition and scope of career education and the needs for individualization and support systems. C. Kokaska and L. Cook in "Concepts and Definitions" offer insight on problems in defining behavior disorders with the absence of operational criteria. In a final paper, "Perspectives on Chronically Disruptive Students" in the first section, F. Wood and T. Kayser note the complex causation, and suggest components of effective educational planning. Five papers describe career education approaches to students with behavior disorders: "Considerations in Elementary Level Programming" (P. Sitlington and G. Clark); "Self Awareness and Career Exploration at the Junior High Level" (K. McCoy and R. Fritsch); "A High School Model for the Behaviorally Disordered: Focus on Career Education" (M. Fender and G. Wolff); "Project PISCES: An Experiential Approach" (T. Simek); and "Parental Involvement in Career Education" (S. Vasa). Two papers address career programming in special settings: "Career Education in Institutional Settings" (D. Knapczyk, R. Dever, J. Scibak); and "Career Education from a Community Perspective" (F. Menolascino, J. McGee, D. Eyde). (CL)
