The Vocational Counselor and Guidance Team.
Smith, Robert L.
This text describes the role and responsibilities of vocational guidance personnel--the counselor, teacher, and administrator--at all levels. Chapter 1 first offers a definition of vocational guidance suitable and general enough for all levels including kindergarten through post-high school. General functions of a comprehensive vocational guidance program are then outlined and followed by activities that may be performed by the vocational counselor, general counselor, special education counselor, or vocational education coordinator. These include educational and occupational information services, vocational appraisal, vocational counseling, placement, parent counsultation, staff consultation, research and evaluation, public information, and planning and development. Chapters 2 through 5 focus on vocational guidance at the elementary, middle school, senior high, and post-high school levels. In each chapter the roles and responsibilities of each member of the vocational guidance team at that level are defined, and basic activities that may be conducted by the vocational guidance team are described.
