Counseling Educationally Disadvantaged Adults. Proceedings of Institute Series.
Pattison, Rose Mary, Ed.
In 1967, several two-day institutes were held in Indiana for counselors of adult basic education students, and, in addition, a one-week residential institute for selected counselors who had attended a spring institute. Primary emphasis was on awareness of responsibility and understanding of the under-educated adult. Situational and Q-Sort tests were used to determine participant's perception of the role of counselors of educationally disadvantaged adults. Participants entered with a high degree of skill and knowledge about adult counseling which was maintained, but not significantly increased, by the programs. Counselors' perceptions of the undereducated adult as an educable entity increased after the institute, but there was a slight decrease in the perceptions of the adult as an economic unit and as a human being. The selected group who attended the residential institute did not differ from the total group. (Document includes several resource documents--Purposes and objectives of the institute, Adult Basic Education in Indiana, Counseling the under-educated adult, The social-psychological sphere of the undereducated adult, Outline of an orientation and guidance training session for teachers and counselors of under-educated adults in selected areas of the State of Kentucky, The power of the poor, The second mile, and Summation and a look to the future.)
