Rehabilitating the Culturally Disadvantaged.
Ayers, George E., Ed
A conference on rehabilitating the culturally disadvantaged was held at Mankato College in 1967. The purposes were to provide the trainees (1) the essential information relative to the characteristics and problems of, as well as the methods for, rehabilitating the culturally deprived; (2) an opportunity to cooperatively develop criteria for utilization by state vocational rehabilitation agencies in diagnosing cultural deprivation; and (3) an opportunity to delineate and develop procedures for increasing the provision of vocation rehabilitation services to the culturally disadvantaged. The four sections of the report deal with the following areas: (1) rehabilitating the culturally deprived, (2) approaches to rehabilitating the culturally deprived, (3) representative rehabilitation programs for the culturally disadvantaged, and (4) summary reports of workshop sessions. Topics discussed include: (1) preparing diagnosticians for working with the culturally disadvantaged, (2) communicating with the culturally disadvantaged, (3) approaches in rehabilitating the Indian, and (4) The Minnesota Rampac Project. A list of conference participants and a bibliography are included. (Author/KJ)
