ISSUES IN TRAINING THE NEW NONPROFESSIONAL.
RIESSMAN, FRANK
THE GUIDELINES THAT ARE PRESENTED IN THIS MODEL FOR TRAINING NONPROFESSIONALS FOR JOBS IN THE FIELD OF HUMAN SERVICES ARE BASED ON A "NEW CAREER" CONCEPT, WHERE THE JOB ITSELF PROVIDES MOTIVATION FOR FURTHER DEVELOPMENT THROUGH TRAINING, UPGRADING, AND EDUCATION. SPECIAL EMPHASIS IN DEVELOPING TRAINING PROGRAMS IS GIVEN TO THE RECRUITMENT OF SENIOR TRAINERS ("TRAINERS OF TRAINERS") FROM NONTRADITIONAL SOURCES, THE SPECIALIZED TRAINING REQUIRED BY THESE TRAINERS, AND THE KIND OF KNOWLEDGE THEY NEED TO HAVE ABOUT NONPROFESSIONAL TRAINEES. SPECIFICALLY DISCUSSED IN THESE GUIDELINES ARE THE RECRUITMENT AND SELECTION OF TRAINEES. RECOMMENDED TRAINING METHODS INCLUDE ON-SITE TRAINING, BRIEF PRESERVICE ORIENTATION IN A "PROTECTED" BASE, A PHASED PROGRAM AND SYSTEMATIC INSERVICE, JOB-RELATED TRAINING CONDUCTED IN TEAMS OR GROUPS. SOME OF THE SUGGESTIONS ARE ILLUSTRATED BY REFERENCE TO THE EXPERIENCES OF THE LINCOLN NEIGHBORHOOD SERVICE CENTER IN NEW YORK CITY. (NH)
