This collection from the First International Conference on Counseling presents a collection of papers delivered on emerging counseling issues in Asian countries and the United States. The tremendous impact on peoples' lives of the cultural, political, and economic changes in these countries has created numerous issues that impact the counseling profession. The papers included in this symposium address ways in which these changes have affected peoples lives, as well as how the interconnecting of these cultures has changed lives. Some specific issues emerging from these changes include topics of aging, changing roles of women, career counseling, abuse, educational reform, technology, and cultural, political and economic development. All conference presentations are included. The 21 papers include: (1) "Personality Fitness Training for Youth" (J. Hart, R. Revheim); (2) "Direction of Guidance Work in Hong Kong Primary Schools" (T. W. Mak); (3) "Reform in China: A Comparison of Career Needs of Chinese and Canadian Middle School Students" (H.
