Counseling Within an Indian Adult Basic Education Project.
Collins, Ray
Many Indians are leaving their communities to seek employment in the cities, but because of lack of education and social prejudice are forced to live under poor conditions. The Indian Education Center in Vancouver has an adult basic education program that includes counseling. The center tries to help all Indians referred to it; so far it has assisted about 200 Indian men and women. The center tries, through trust, confidence, and friendship, to develop a productive interpersonal relationship with its Indian students. It attempts to create a friendly center atmosphere with T.V., stereo-tapes, ping pong and pool tables. The program is flexible enough to accommodate individual differences. Each person's abilities are identified, and individuals are encouraged to seek personal, social, and academic growth. The help and cooperation of various agencies and individuals are sought and encouraged. The center cooperates, particularly, with agencies, counselors, and social workers that are closely involved with Indian affairs. (Author/SE)
