American Indian Student Counselor Handbook.
Evans, Wayne H.
The handbook, a first in the attempt to collect information about counseling Indian students, represents the results of 1976-77 couselor training workshops in South Dakota. The handbook contains article reprints, ideas, and suggestions from many counselors and non-counselors, and is intended not as expertise but as a resource primarily for counselors of Indian students at all educational levels. The information is presented in six major sections. "Counseling the Indian Student" presents a counselor's Code of Ethics; notes potential cultural differences and conflicts; and discusses the role, responsibilities, and relationships of a counselor. Two sections detail counselors' activities, roles, and responsibilities at the elementary and secondary level, and include reprints on elementary school counseling and on financial aid. In "Counseling the Indian College Student" there is discussion of college application and admission, financial aid, housing, course selection, cassette/filmstrip programs and films by title, with appropriate level, cost, and time. The "Miscellaneous" section contains brief excerpts on general resources, counseling skills, drug/alcohol counseling, evaluation, and other topics. (SB)
