Developing Communication Skills and Program Strategies in Career Guidance for Ethnic Minorities. Coordinator's Guide.
Brooks, Lois P.
This Module is designed for use by guidance personnel in grades K-12 and at the postsecondary level. These include teachers, administrators, counselors, paraprofessionals, pupil personnel workers and any others providing services to ethnic minority persons. This Module will help each participant to differentiate between effective and ineffective verbal and nonverbal communication between ethnic groups, apply self concept enhancing practices for ethnic minorities to career guidance activities, and develop strategies for assisting ethnic minority persons to cope with special problems experienced in implementing career plans. The module is designed as a six-hour workshop to be run by a coordinator. The Guide defines the coordinator's role in four areas: setting the tone, setting the pace, facilitating the discussion, and evaluating. Specific suggestions are given for preparing and carrying out the workshop, as well as directions for running each activity. The Guide is used in conjunction with the participants' module.
