Changes in Racial Prejudice and Dogmatism as a Result of Interracial Counselor Training Experiances.
Kelly, Eugene W., Jr.
After failing to obtain a change in racial attitudes during an initial counselor training institute, changes were made for a subsequent institute. The second institute eliminated large group sessions, emphasized small group encounter and provided biracial leadership in each small group. Some participants also received special training in genuineness. Results of the second institute indicated that at the end of the institute whites expressed significantly less prejudice toward Negroes, one small group showed significantly less global social distance, and members of the genuineness training group expressed significantly less racial prejudice as well as global social distance.
