This document consists of the second section of a book of readings on issues related to adult career development. The five chapters in this second section focus on strategies and methods for providing adults with career services. "The Adult Career Program Developer as Learner" (H. Daniel Lea and Zandy Leibowitz) presents a five-stage model of adult career program development. It discusses the stages of data gathering, conceptualization, design, implementation, and evaluation/redesign and examines how individual learning styles of program developers can affect the program development process. "Appraising Adults' Career Capabilities: Ability, Interest, and Personality" (John Crites) presents a review and critical analysis of scientific findings on appraisal instruments for adult career capabilities and informed experience with them. Included are discussions of ability tests, vocational interest inventories, and personality measures. "Counseling Adults for Career Change" (Lawrence Brammer and Philip Abrego) explores counseling approaches for assisting adults in managing their career changes or transitions. It presents a general model of the helping process. "Systematic Career Guidance and Computer-Based Systems" (JoAnn Harris-Bowlsbey) presents a generic model for the content of a career guidance program, distinguishes between computer-based career information and career guidance systems, and relates these two types of systems to the generic model. "A Team Approach to Career Counseling" (Carol Blimline and David Schwandt) discusses three major categories of counseling interventions: professionally assisted counseling, self-paced counseling, and employer-assisted counseling.
