Vocational and School Counseling of Indian Students. A Position Paper.
Spang, Alonzo T.
Research is needed to determine whether American Indian students really benefit from counseling as perceived by non-Indians, the nature of current methods of formal and informal counseling of Indians, effective forms of counseling for Indians, the relationship between Indians' self-esteem and employment, factors affecting vocational decision-making, the impact of current occupational and career materials, family and tribal interests, and occupational difficulties. In terms of methodology, researchers must be aware that Indian students are unique, that English is a second language for most Indian students, that special measurement instruments having validity for Indians must be developed and used, and that results from subpopulations of Indians must not be generalized to the total Indian situation.
