Perceived Problem Areas by Black and White Students and Hints About Comparative Counseling Needs by Franklin Westbrook, Javier Miyares and Joyce Roberts.. An Article Critique


The difference between the treatments that students from different races receive actually affects the manner by which black and white students gain counseling services. The separation of population number that defines the black students apart from the white students create a specific indication on what specific services are made available for everyone in the school . The distinctive separation of the said individuals based on their color has made several universities around United States rather problematic. However, when the situation on other schools that have relatively colored population have been observed accordingly, the said problems do not affect the learning nor the casual environment of the institution as much as it does in universities where white Americans dominate the population f the school. Relatively, the separation of students’ races identify the environment of the entire university as well which also defines the capacity of the school to provide services that are necessarily important for their target students. In the article of Westbrook and his colleagues, they explore the manner by which the problems of colored schools are relatively different from that of the situation dealt with by the students in institutions with more balanced in terms of colored population. These problems are usually related to comparative counseling needs. Psychological services rendered to students are very important especially in consideration to the need by which the said individuals are given proper guidance especially in relation to the condition by which they are able to face the different challenges that the years of young adulthood presents them with.
