Globalization of Professions: A U.S. Perspective with the Cyberworld in Mind. ERIC/CASS Digest.
Clawson, Thomas W.; Jordan, Joseph
While professional organizations are traditionally low-budget operations, the advent of the World Wide Web has made many ideas of bringing service organizations and new disciplines into the U.S. mainstream feasible. This article focuses specifically on the cyberspace expansion of the counseling profession. Because counseling lends itself to cyber applications, some of these ideas may be translated to other helping professions interested in cyberspace expansion. As professionals with global expertise, there are two mandates: (1) instructing members of the profession with strategies for finding regulations and proper credentials in foreign countries; and (2) knowing whom to turn to as foreign counterparts. As the global community develops and educational needs expand, the electronic community will be a key portal for globalization of all professions. (ADT)
