This document, one in a series of booklets containing research reports on vocational counseling and guidance, was prepared by the Canada Employment and Immigration Commission. Eleven articles are contained in this collection. Four of the articles form a series on how adults' concerns about work change with age, including the vocational development of adults at ages 43-47, 48-52, and 53-57. Other topics covered in the remaining seven articles are the following: counseling as a social exchange, a rationale and reason for short-term counseling, a profile of how Canadians use their time--and the implications of their time use on career counseling, assessing and counseling the antisocial client, skills for counseling in an institution, psychometric and situational vocational assessment at the Royal Ottawa Regional Rehabilitation Centre, and stages in the development of an interdisciplinary approach to career decision making. Most of the reports contain bibliographies. The booklet contains lists of contents of the previous five NATCON collections. (KC)
