Counseling The Mexican-American Student: A Position Paper.
Gonzalez, Carlos; And Others
The authors attempt to increase understanding of the Chicano student in a community college setting. The attitudes and values of a counselor are very important in a counseling relationship; therefore, a counselor must be honest with himself in analyzing his own feelings about those who are different from himself. Many Chicano students enter community colleges with a definite identity crisis. They have been living in two cultures, believing that they must totally accept one and reject the other. A counselor has a responsibility to educate himself about the history and culture of the Mexican-American and to take an active part in helping students resolve their identity crises. In addition it is important for students to be encouraged to study the history and culture of the Mexican-American (i.e., Raza classes). (Author/PC)
