An Equal Chance: Handbook for Counseling Indian Students.
Farlow, Barbara A.
This handbook provides educational, vocational and resource information to aid teachers, advisors, and counselors in guiding Indian students. Information presented includes the cultural dilemma, Wisconsin's Indians today, Wisconsin Indian tribes, counseling techniques, economic assistance, educational opportunities, state resources and books representing true Indian culture. Essentially, the handbook is a resource of contextual insight into the world of the Indian, in order that the counselor, teacher or advisor may be better equipped to understand the world of the Indian, his needs, and his perceptions of a white socioeconomic world. Only with this degree of understanding of the Indian can the counselor attempt to counsel the Indian justly and benefit both Indian and counseling interests. In effect, the handbook gives the view that the Indian is a member of our American culture and, simultaneously, a member of a unique, valued sub-culture. (Author/TA)
