THE TRAINING OF PERSONNEL FOR THE LICENSING OF FAMILY HOMES IN CHILD WELFARE. FINAL REPORT.
COSTIN, LELA B.
A THREE-YEAR DEMONSTRATION PROJECT TO TRAIN NONPROFESSIONALS FOR LICENSING DAY CARE AND FOSTER HOMES WAS A COOPERATIVE VENTURE BETWEEN A SCHOOL OF SOCIAL WORK AND TEN STATE DIVISIONS OF CHILD WELFARE, STIMULATED BY CONCERN ABOUT MANPOWER SHORTAGES AND THE NEED FOR NEW APPROACHES TO TRAINING NONPROFESSIONALS IN SOCIAL WORK POSITIONS. FOLLOWING ANALYSIS OF THE FUNCTION OF LICENSING, DEVELOPMENT OF CURRICULUM MATERIALS, AND SETTING STANDARDS OF COMPETENCE, THERE WERE THREE TRAINING DEMONSTRATIONS INVOLVING 41 LICENSING TRAINEES--(1) A COURSE CONDUCTED UNDER THE AUSPICES AND ON THE PREMISES OF A GRADUATE SCHOOL OF SOCIAL WORK, COMBINED WITH ON THE JOB TRAINING, (2) AN AGENCY INSERVICE TRAINING PROGRAM, AND (3) A COURSE GIVEN BY THE GRADUATE SCHOOL TO TRAIN CHILD WELFARE AGENCY SUPERVISORS TO TRAIN NONPROFESSIONAL WORKERS. TRAINEE PERFORMANCE ON THE JOB WAS EVALUATED THROUGH A SUPERVISORY RATING SCALE. THE TRAINEES PERFORMED MOST TASKS SATISFACTORILY, BUT PERFORMED POORLY IN CASE RECORDING, USE OF AUTHORITY IN UNSATISFACTORY SITUATIONS, SUPERVISION-CONSULTATION TO A LICENSEE, AND ADEQUATE STUDY AT A TIME OF RELICENSING. NO DIFFERENCES WERE FOUND WHEN TRAINEE PERFORMANCE WAS COMPARED FOR EACH OF THE TRAINING GROUPS, OR WHEN TRAINEES WERE REGROUPED ACCORDING TO AGE, LEVEL OF EDUCATION, OR PRIOR EXPERIENCE IN SOCIAL WORK.
