Certificate Program in the Social Services. Final Report.
Oregon State Public Welfare Commission, Portland.
This project provided for a continuing experimental education program co-sponsored by the Oregon State Public Welfare Commission, the Portland State College School of Social Work, and the Division of Continuing Education in the Oregon State Department of Higher Education. It was designed to provide a practice-focused approach to professional training of workers who had not received graduate training in social work, but had developed well in the public welfare setting. There were 60 participants each year, with not more than 50 from the public welfare setting. The program consisted of 3 12-week quarters, with 12 2-hour sessions weekly in each quarter. Elliot Studt's educational theories formed the frame of reference for the educational curriculum. Pre- and posttests were made, and various methods were used to evaluate the effectiveness of this program in contrast to the on-going agency in-service training program. This volume contains the summary and evaluations of each year's program, a study of the characteristics of the students involved in the program, and a summary of the research findings. (Author)
