An Assessment of the Cross-Cultural Training Needs of South Carolina Counselors.
Gilliam, Sonja Patrice
A study is proposed to assess the extent of cross-cultural training of secondary school counselors in South Carolina and to assess the need for training as identified by practicing counselors. Chapter 1 introduces the problem and provides background, while Chapter 2 is a literature review. Chapter 3 describes the research methodology, and chapters 4 and 5 (not included) will present study findings and a summary. The increasing diversity of school populations makes it imperative that counselors be able to respond to students of different ethnic groups and cultural backgrounds. The literature review provides a framework for cross-cultural counseling, presenting theory and a review of the work of notable theorists, and a discussion of the characteristics of the following racial and ethnic groups; (1) Native Americans; (2) Black Americans; (3) Asian Americans; and (4) Hispanic Americans. Some existing programs for cross-cultural counselor training are reviewed. Participants in the study will be randomly selected secondary school counselors in South Carolina who will be asked to complete a 36-item questionnaire after it is pilot tested and revised as necessary.
