Building a culturally responsive guidance programme: Attending to the counselling needs of ethnic minority students

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter lays out the diversity of pastoral needs for ethnic minority students in the context of Hong Kong schools. The understanding of cultural differences and development of intercultural sensitivity have been examined which reveals the counselling needs of ethnic minority students at school and individual levels. Collaborations with parents and career guidance and inspirations also play an important part in the whole-person growth of students. Last but not least important is the focus on the challenges of developing culturally responsive guidance in schools. Copyright © 2016 Taylor and Francis.
