Sources for Cross Cultural Counseling.
Calvin, Richmond E.
School counselors today work with clients from minority races, minority ethnic groups, homosexuals, females, at-risk students and the handicapped. Counselors need to be willing to learn more about these minorities and how to better meet their needs. Many colleges offering counseling programs include multicultural education. Counselors must be aware of their own cultural values and prejudices before they can help clients from minority backgrounds. This document contains an annotated bibliography of recent research studies concerning minority students and multicultural education for counselor trainees. A review of the literature annotated revealed that minority students needed help in facing the challenges presented by the typical white, middle class school system and that counselors needed to have multicultural counseling skills to help students from minority racial and ethnic groups. It is suggested that by focusing on multicultural education and efforts, counselors can become culturally experienced, enabling all students to have access to quality guidance and counseling services. Descriptive annotations of published research studies examined are presented in these categories: (1) counseling black students; (2) counseling Hispanics and American Indians; (3) counseling other racial and ethnic groups and at-risk students; (4) counseling and sex bias; (5) counseling and the homosexual student; (6) general concerns of minorities; (7) general issues in multicultural counseling; and (8) methodology for multicultural counseling and curriculum.
