CAPS Capsule. Winter 1968, Volume 2, Number 2.
Mann, Inez K., Ed.
Devoted to the "Disadvantaged," this issue of CAPS Capsule features an interview with Dr. Edmund Gordon, Director of the ERIC Clearinghouse on the Disadvantaged. In response to questions, Dr. Gordon discusses disadvantagedness, those behaviors characteristic of disadvantaged populations, problems involved in standardized objective testing of such groups, his thoughts on how guidance personnel can help ghetto youth by becoming environmental manipulators, and new directions counselor preparation might take. Responding to Dr. Gordon's statements, but not always agreeing with them, are several prominent educators including: C. H. Patterson (University of Illinois), Robert Williams (Oakland County, Michigan), and Anthony C. Riccio (Ohio State University). Garry Walz, Director of the ERIC Clearinghouse on Counseling and Personnel Services, presents generalizations derived from a number of recent research reports on projects for assisting the disadvantaged. Also included are the following: a list of recent ERIC documents on the disadvantaged, briefly annotated; a review of the Interprofessional Research Council on Pupil Personnel Services (IRCOPPS); a review of CAPS products and activities; and a tribute by Garry R. Walz on the passing of Edward C. Roeber. (CJ)
