Staff Training Activity -- County Welfare Departments; July 1, 1968 to June 30, 1969.
MacIntosh, Elizabeth C.; Klaus, Alan K.
Data on formal staff training activity by county welfare departments in the State of California from July 1, 1968, to June 30, 1969 are summarized. The counties were divided into three groups according to the number of employees; the total number of cases in all programs; and the scope of complexity of the agency programs and organizations. Some of the subject areas are: orientation and induction; intake training; community resources; medical assistance; understanding and use of casework concepts; employment preparation and achievement; and differential use of the staff. Man hours of training per employee during the year ranged from none in four counties to 10.7 in one county. Forty-one percent of all training man hours received by ten percent of the trainees was devoted to orientation and induction. Three fourths of the formal courses were designed for social workers; the next largest amount of training directed toward specific staff groups was provided for clerical staff. These data do not cover all formal training activity in all counties. (PT)
