Counseling the Bilingual Student. Searchlight Plus: Relevant Resources in High Interest Areas, 54+.
This information analysis paper, based on a computer search of the ERIC database from November 1966 through December 1980 examines the topic of counseling the bilingual student. An introductory narrative highlights issues and trends, and suggests possible implications for the future of guidance, focusing on: (1) the concept of bilingual education from a transcultural perspective; (2) typical problems facing bilingual students and families; (3) useful counseling strategies; (4) effective programs for bilingual students in the areas of counseling, bilingual and vocational education, and auxiliary services; and (5) the practical implications of bilingualism for guidance counselors and for the United States. The significance of the guidance counselor's role is discussed and an expansion of that role is suggested. Cultural conflict, ethnic identity, and racism are explored in a discussion of an educational needs survey of Latinos. The complete computer search, including annotations of 13 journal articles and abstracts of over 100 documents, is also provided. (NRB)
