A Changing World of Work.
Gysbers, Norman C.; And Others
This seventh chapter in "Elementary School Counseling in a Changing World" discusses theoretical and practical issues related to career development and offers suggestions to help elementary school counselors promote students' career exploration. Four journal articles are included. "Major Trends in Career Development Theory and Practice" by Norman Gysbers looks at predominant trends that may have substantial impact on the future of career development theory and practice. Four major trends are traced and summarized and then brought together to create a clearer picture of the future of career development. "The Impact of Technology on Occupational Change: Implications for Career Guidance" by Kenneth Hoyt presents basic facts on a number of aspects of the impact of technology on occupational change, and looks at this situation in the United States. "Using Books to Enhance Career Awareness" by Nancy Staley and John Mangieri provides a bibliography of suggested readings to enhance career awareness, which should be useful to teachers and counselors. "The Art of Career Exploration: Occupational Sex-Role Stereotyping Among Elementary School Children" by Mary Bowe Hageman and Samuel Gladding describes a study conducted to obtain further information in the field of occupational sex-role stereotyping among elementary school children. The chapter concludes with a set of issues for elementary school counselors to consider about a changing world of work. (NB)
