Shaping Counselor Education Programs in the Next Five Years: An Experimental Prototype for the Counselor of Tomorrow. Proceedings of the Flagship Conference of the Association for Counselor Education and Supervision, (Orlando, Florida, April 19-May 2, 1983).
Walz, Garry R., Ed.; Benjamin, Libby, Ed.
This monograph contains the proceedings of the Flagship Conference of the Association for Counselor Education and Supervision (ACES), which was designed to discuss the future of counselor education and to share images of how the counseling profession can be promoted and enhanced. The 16 papers are loosely divided into categories. The first two papers discuss creative leadership and changing trends in counselor training. The next five articles deal with special perspectives on needed or potential changes in counselor education, such as research, health counseling, behavioral counseling, mental health counseling, and the new field of state-of-consciousness counseling. The next three papers emphasize equity and basic human rights, including counseling in a culturally pluralistic society, prejudice, and sex role issues. The impact of technology on counselor education and practice is discussed from the perspective of ethical issues. The next three articles delve into the future of guidance, through a discussion of significant changes in society and their resultant impact on what counselors do, and the need for counselor renewal. The book concludes with an overall retrospective statement that also emphasizes the challenge of creative leadership in counselor education for the future. (JAC)
