A Special Desegregation Training Institute for Counselors: Race, Culture and Interracial Group Processes. Technical Report.
Chick, Joyce M.
Negro and Caucasian secondary school counselors from the school districts of North Florida and South Georgia were given the opportunity to extend their knowledge of each other's race. The counselors were provided with actual experience, through interracial group processes, that enabled them to increase their skills in communicating with persons of other races. Through small group interaction, opportunities for individual self-exploration and self-understanding were provided. The program was designed to provide the participants with integrated practicum and academic experiences. Sociology studies, a practicum in interracial group processes, and basic encounter groups were part of the program. A post-evaluation workshop was held. Results seemed to be gratifying. Group spirit had been developed, with no regard to race. Task oriented groups studied the problems of desegregation. There was a high degree of participant interest. (PH)
