Career Counseling in Schools: Multicultural and Developmental Perspectives.
Herring, Roger D.
This handbook is a resource for counselor educators, school counselors, and other helping professionals who have not discovered an appropriate multicultural approach to career development. It is designed to enhance the school counselor's knowledge about cultural diversity and to provide appropriate career development interventions with special population students. This book combines the themes of the relation of changing demographics to sociocultural and psychocultural imperatives in schools; the balance between universalism and cultural pluralism; the resilience and adaptation of ethnic and cultural student groups; and the ethnic and cultural status as stressors on the normal development of school-age youths. It presents explicit interventions, assessment techniques, and information services for successful career counseling with diverse, school-aged populations. It addresses the unique career concerns of immigrant students; gay, lesbian, and bisexual students; and students with physical, mental, or medial challenges. Each chapter contains experiential activities that can be adapted to various ages, grade level, and learning styles. (Contains an extensive reference list and an index.) (MKA)
