Developing Programs in the Helping Services: Field Experience, Methods Courses; Employment Implications.
Teague, Dutton, Ed.; Buck, Dorothy P., Ed.
The Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE), interested in manpower in mental health and related areas, has focused upon encouraging the development of undergraduate programs in the helping services. This first phase has been most effective, and numerous programs have emerged throughout the western states. The emphasis must now be upon strengthening these many new programs which have begun or are emerging. As a first major step in this direction, WICHE hosted a workshop for directors of undergraduate programs in the western states. This workshop focused upon the primary concerns as expressed by the program directors: (1) the effective development of a field experience, (2) rationale for, and considerations in, developing methods courses, and (3) employment considerations for the graduate with a baccalaureate degree. This publication, utilizing the papers from the workshop, was developed to add to the accumulating information, considerations, and approaches in the crucial areas of program development and manpower utilization in the helping services.
