Sex Discrimination in Guidance and Counseling. Report (Volume 1).
Harway, Michele; And Others
This report reviews sex discrimination in guidance and counseling in secondary and post secondary education. The primary focus of the study is vocational guidance and counseling. Personal social counseling and mental health are examined briefly. The discussion is based on an extensive literature review, a re-analysis of existing data, and exploratory studies in the Los Angeles high schools. The following topics are discussed at length in chapters: an overview of the effects of the educational system and society on the student; counselor training and the composition of the counseling profession; the effects of role and sex on counseling and counselor attitudes; a review of counseling instruments and materials, counseling and guidance theories and counseling outcomes in terms of sex discrimination. The last chapter ties together data from preceding sections to present preliminary conclusions and implications for four groups: legislators, researchers, institutions, and counselors. There are also 41 tables taken from statistical reports including Project TALENT, census data, the Cooperative Institutional Research Program, the National Scholarship Service and Fund for Negro Students, and the National Longitudinal Study of the High School Class of 1972.
