Equity Counseling for Community College Women.
Articles written by women educators and counselors are provided with accompanying resource information in this five-part monograph which focuses on the need for and the implementation of sex equity vocational counseling at community colleges. Part I examines the role the counselor can play in eliminating the effects of sex stereotyping on the occupational decisions made by women and in making occupational training available to women in areas traditionally dominated by men. Part II discusses the institutional commitment needed to provide sex equity counseling in terms of programs and services, and Part III examines the special needs of various target populations, including minorities, middle-aged women re-entering the job market, displaced homemakers, and welfare recipients. Part IV explores various techniques that can be used in implementing sex equity, including group counseling, workshops, awareness training, life/work planning, community activities and clubs, computerized career counseling, and granting college credit for homemaking and volunteer work experience. Part V describes the exemplary counseling programs and services provided for women students at six community colleges. A bibliography of materials of interest to students, counselors, and administrators is appended. (JP)
