Erasing Sex Bias Through Staff Training: Women in Employment. Unit I.
Soldwedel, Bette J.
This document, one of four staff training units in a series designed to attack problems of sex bias in the counseling of women and girls, is intended to help counselors and counselor educators consider their knowledge of and attitudes toward the sex-limited status of women. In this unit, two staff training workshop strategies are provided. The first workshop is designed to expose counselors to myths and stereotypes associated with women as workers and to increase counselors' knowledge about the participation of women in the labor force. The second workshop focuses on enhancing counselors' awareness of internal and external barriers to women's achievement in the world of work and of the factors that influence career decisions among girls and women. For each workshop, objectives, competencies, preparation, procedures, and time requirements are listed. Examples of pre-tests, readings, and competency checks for workshop participants are also provided. (Author/NRB)
