Counseling for Racial Understanding.
Bryant, B. K., Comp.
This book is a practical guide for professional counselors and others concerned with evaluating and reducing the effects of prejudice. It is based on the concept that before victims of prejudice can be helped, the nature of prejudice and its effect on all individuals must be understood. Full of real-world advice, this book addresses how to identify the problem, handle prejudice-related events, initiate post-event counseling, meet the needs of the victims, counsel those who act on feelings of racism, and bring about permanent change. Chapters are: (1) Prejudice and Its Forms of Expression; (2) Characteristics of Affected Populations: People Who Are Prejudiced; (3) Characteristics of Affected Populations: People Who Are the Targets of Prejudice; (4) Defining a Prejudice-Related Event; (5) Short-Term Responses to Overt Events; (6) Establishing an Environment for Community-Directed Counseling; and (7) Foundations for Permanent Change. Contains 10 references and an annotated resource list. (LSR)
