Counseling Girls and Women: A Guide for Jewish and Other Minority Women. BBCCS Pamphlet No. 1023
Wolkon, Kenneth A.
Designed primarily for the counseling of Jewish women, this guide provides an overall picture of the world of work in the 1970's and offers specific information on the needs of minority groups in the counseling setting. The authors conclude that the number of opportunities that exist for women are infinite, and that there is no longer any need for a woman to feel that her occupational horizons are limited. Group guidance techniques are viewed as valuable tools in providing up-to-date information and motivating participants to gain insights into new educational and career possibilities that may exist for them. Conclusions from research on Jewish women are presented, especially as these conclusions help counselors better understand this unique minority group. A comprehensive bibliography is included, as well as a list of women's causes, committees, and professional associations. (PC)
