The resources are organized in four sections representing areas of basic concern for guidance personnel. Section 1 presents selected portions of guidance programs from around the United States for grades K-12. Section 2 synthesizes the most current, available information on computer-assisted career guidance programs. Section 3 presents proven strategies to help counselors deal with students' day-to-day concerns. Issues which are addressed include death, suicide, drugs and alcohol, career planning, teenage pregnancy, nutrition, and stress. Section 4 presents resources and suggested activities for helping students with special problems, e.g., those with learning disabilities, the disadvantaged, and gifted students. Areas addressed include careers, social relationships, teaching strategies, independent living, and minority issues. Resources in this volume represent classroom and teaching techniques as well as those from a traditional counseling focus.
