Counseling and the Minority Group Student.
This report focuses on an in-service education activity related to a major need of open door community colleges, and to a degree, all educational institutions--the ability to provide adequate educational, occupational, and personal help to students from minority groups in society. Such an effort concerns all phases of the life and program of a community college. Particularly, however, the college turns to the counselor for expertise and leadership on how to help a student succeed academically, to work out career problems on both a short- and long-term basis, and to deal constructively with personal difficulties. Two workshops are described in this report which deal with this issue. Both workshop sessions were structured on the premise that cross cultural counseling is not only possible, but successfully operative in both direct and analogous ways. It was suggested that since it is possible for a young counselor to deal with a geriatric population, cross-cultural counseling is also possible. (Author/BW)
