In-Service Education for Case Workers in Home Management Improvement for Welfare Recipient Families in Ten Eastern Kentucky Counties.
Morehead State Univ., KY. School of Applied Sciences and Technology.
Morehead State University conducted inservice workshops in home management for 42 social caseworkers in eastern Kentucky. The subjects covered were community resources; family planning; clothing, gardening, and nutrition; and environmental sanitation and home nursing. Teaching methods included lectures, field trips, buzz sessions, questions and answers, group presentations, movies, film strips, and transparencies. Participants felt the most interesting subjects were sanitation, home nursing, gardening, family planning, and nutrition for the elderly. The lecture method was rated most effective; films and film strips were also ranked high; discussion groups were rated least effective. Before the workshops, sanitation and home nursing had been the least familiar topics; it was felt that they were well covered but there was a need for more material on home nursing. After several weeks, a followup questionnaire showed that participants felt the information about food stamps and donated food programs, environmental sanitation, community resource agencies, and home nursing had been most beneficial to case workers when working with clients. Money management and family planning were topics they felt least prepared to discuss with their clients. (EB)
