Developing Communication Skills and Program Strategies in Career Guidance for Ethnic Minorities.
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 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 participants' module contains information and workshop activities designed to develop skills in communication, self-concept and career management. The assumption made in this material is that, while all students need assistance in identifying and exploring career goals, minority students have greater obstacles to overcome and hence need additional assistance.
