The book explores the possibility of providing objective and enlightened procedures of guidance and counselling to our youth in the rural as well as the urban habitats. The entire write up consists of seven different chapters and is presented with clarity and conviction. It encompasses discussions on the fundamental concepts, needs, significance and scope of guidance, the various types of guidance, educational, vocational and personalgermane to the 21st century world of work and the new clientele, the basic assumptions underlying guidance processes, the techniques of guidance and counselling, the guidance services-their operational constraints and limitations, the evaluation and recording devices used in guidance and the developing new occupational scenario in India. The informal tone and texture adopted in explaining the abstract constructs relating to guidance and conselling pervades and predominates the presentations throughout. There is a peculiar mix of personalistic and impressionistic style in dealing with the factual and conceptual elements underlying the latest theories and approaches to guidance in the emerging world scenario and which have a bearing and implications for effective handling of guidance issues in India.
