A DESCRIPTION OF DELINQUENT, AND/OR DISADVANTAGED SUB-CULTURE.
Boston Univ., MA. Law-Medicine Research Inst.
THE NATURAL ABILITIES OF PEOPLE CAN BE STIFLED BY ENVIRONMENT, LEADING TO THE ATTITUDE THAT ONE HAS NO CONTROL OVER HIS DESTINY AND NEED MAKE NO LIFE PLANS. THEREFORE EDUCATIONAL COUNSELORS SHOULD PROVIDE OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE ADOLESCENT TO EXPRESS HIS ABILITIES IN A CONSTRUCTIVE MANNER. DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN FEEL THAT--STAYING OUT OF TROUBLE, TOUGHNESS, ABILITY TO DUPE OTHERS, EXCITEMENT, FATE, AND AUTONOMY ARE IMPORTANT. THE CHILDREN USUALLY ACT WITHDRAWN, HOSTILE, AND DO NOT HAVE A TRUE CONCEPT OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SCHOOL AND THE WORLD OF WORK. THE COUNSELOR SHOULD LEARN OF THE CHILD'S BACKGROUND. HE SHOULD RECOGNIZE HIM AS A PERSON AND ENCOURAGE HIM BY REMINDING HIM OF PAST SUCCESS. COUNSELORS SHOULD USE SITUATIONS TO DEVELOP TRUST, AUTONOMY, INITIATIVE, INDUSTRY, AND IDENTIFY FOR THE ADOLESCENT.
