Training Social Welfare Manpower; The Essential Task.
Council on Social Work Education, New York, NY.
Attended by high level administrators and advisors from 96 countries, both developing and industrialized, the 1968 Conference of Ministers Responsible for Social Welfare focused on implications for national development, government responsibility, the meeting of professional and nonprofessional manpower needs, and forms of international cooperation. Such concerns as relevant curriculum content, expanding problems and local conditions, preparation of social work teachers and other indigenous personnel, professional training of multifunction personnel (generalists), ways of assessing manpower and training needs, the role of voluntary agencies and the United Nations, and the need for regional research and training centers, were stressed.
