Sex Fairness in Career Guidance: A Learning Kit.
Stebbins, Linda B.; And Others
This learning kit presents self-administered curriculum materials which can be used by counselors and counselor educators to aid in the elimination of sex-role stereotyping and sex bias in career choice. Curriculum materials are organized into four chapters: (1) "Orientation to Sex Fairness" introduces the dual role system, discusses traditional family and occupational roles for both sexes, their antecedents and consequences, and current challenges to the system; (2) "Recommendations for a Comprehensive Sex-Fair Career Guidance Program" offers a perspective on sex fairness in the counseling process, and also discusses counseling strategies for developing counselor self-awareness for interacting with clients individually or in groups, and for working with others in the client's environment; (3) "Guidelines and Recommendations for Sex-Fair Use of Career Interest Inventories" is designed to help counselors identify sex bias, and to minimize it in administering, reporting, and interpreting these inventories; (4) "A Resource Guide" provides an extensive list of currently available supplementary reading and audiovisual materials, and an annotated bibliography. The text includes pre- and post-assessment techniques, transcripts of counselor-client interactions, and role play scenarios. Separate supplementary materials available as part of the kit include seven different spirit masters, eight role play cards, counselor-client interaction exercises, and an audio-cassette tape of four counseling interviews.
