Using Self Awareness and Effective Communication for Helping Ethnic Minorities With Career Guidance. Module 46.
McDavis, Roderick J.; Parker, Woodrow M.
This staff development module is part of one of three groups of career guidance modules developed, field-tested, and revised by a six-state consortium coordinated by the American Institutes for Research. This module is designed for guidance personnel who work in counseling and guidance with ethnic minorities in school settings, kindergarten through postsecondary level. The goal of this module is to help participants learn about: (1) their attitudes toward ethnic minorities; (2) effects of stereotyping; (3) communication skills; (4) behaviors designed to improve relationships; and (5) career guidance materials for ethnic minorities. The module format consists of an overview, goals, objectives, outline, time schedule, glossary, readings, skill development activities, and bibliography. A Coordinator's Guide is also included with detailed instructions for presenting the module in a workshop setting as well as the facilitator's roles and functions, and the criteria used in assessing the participants' achievement of module objectives.
