Counseling Black College Students in Special Programs.
Haettenschwille, D. L.
Citing the large numbers of disadvantaged black students now being admitted into college in special programs, the author discusses the special counseling needs engendered by their encounter with the institutional demands and alienating effects of the impersonal, white middle-class institution. To assist these students, the counselor must establish a unique relationship with them at a critical moment through an outreach approach. It is anticipated that the counselor will also be called upon to assist the student in the resolution of an identity crisis precipitated by the black student's participation in white institutional life. While not automatically disqualifying white counselors, the author states that they may need to modify their style of counseling from nondirective to open and direct. (TL)
