Whiteley, John M.; Wientge, King M.
Developed out of a workshop conducted during the summer of 1965, this guide provides introductory information in areas pertinent to the study of the culturally deprived youth, raises questions for discussion or future exploration, examines some aspects of fair employment for minority groups, and supplies a relevant bibliography. A comprehensive review of the literature is presented on (1) the effect of cultural disadvantagement on the personality structure, (2) the intellectual effects of cultural deprivation, (3) the problems of psychological assessment of culturally deprived children, and (4) sources of educational programs for alleviating deprivation, with focus on the climate within the community, the home environment, and the relation of the problem in general to socioeconomic status. Findings reported in the four areas which are applicable to employment in business and industry are included. A summary lists descriptive terms of the personality and intellectual deficiencies of and guidelines of behavior for effective and efficient human relations with culturally deprived minority groups. Questions for discussion and a bibliography follow each subject area. (PS)
