Leisure -- Study and teaching; Leisure counseling;


The interelatedness of work and leisure roles should be viewed as having a significant part to play in the career development process. There remains the need to cultivate an understanding of the functions and contributions of leisure to career development and to learn how leisure may be employed as a campus resource in fostering student development. Many factors are influencing the need for better educated students on quality leisure skills. The nature of work in today's society has changed, and its ability to provide satisfaction to the worker has diminished. However, good quality leisure skills will lead to better satisfied and more adaptable workers. Addressed are several approaches counselors can take with students toward broadening attitudes, understanding, knowledge, and skills that will enable them to play a variety of life career roles successfully. Also described are several models of leisure counseling which offer viable components to the counseling process.
