Bonaparte, Gertrude; Pfister, Linda A.
This learning module, one in a series of competency-based guidance program training packages focusing upon professional and paraprofessional competencies of guidance personnel, deals with promoting equity and client advocacy. Addressed in the module are the following topics: identifying stereotypes such as those related to sex, race, ethnic group, age, and handicap in one's own behavior and attitudes and in those of others; selecting criteria for equitable, stereotype-free career guidance programs; developing criteria for identifying the best possible advocate for a given client and making referrals where appropriate; and identifying ways in which clients can become advocates for themselves and helping them ensure their success in doing so. The module consists of readings and learning experiences covering these four topics. Each learning experience contains some or all of the following: an overview, a competency statement, a learning objective, one or more individual learning activities, an individual feedback exercise, one or more group activities, and a facilitator's outline for use in directing the group activities. Concluding the module are a participant self-assessment questionnaire, a trainer's assessment questionnaire, a checklist of performance indicators, a list of references, and an annotated list of suggested additional resources.
