This monograph was written to aid counselors as they create their own counseling futures. "Some Basic Conceptions Regarding a Study of the Future" (Garry R. Walz), the first of six chapters, identifies commonly used methods for assessing the future and discusses six factors that can play an important role in one's approach to futurizing. "What Recent Survey Research Indicates for the Future of Counseling and Counselor Education" (George M. Gazda) summarizes three surveys regarding trends in counseling and counselor education and then cites various changes and developments that would be desirable for counseling in the future. "The Evolution of Counseling" (Bruce Shertzer) looks at both positives and negatives in counseling, viewing the evolution of counseling during the next few years as a function of a larger society going through a difficult period in history. "Forces for Change in Counseling and Counselor Education" (Garry R. Walz) identifies and discusses five forces having particular relevance for counselor education and supervision and for counseling itself. "Nine Trends Which Will Affect the Future of the United States" (Garry R. Walz) emphasizes developments relevant to counseling, presenting nine trends and accompanying significant factors related to each of the trends. "Future Focused Generalizations on Counseling" (Garry R. Walz) encapsulates ideas and images presented in this monograph into 12 succinct generalizations about counseling in the future.
