Austin, Michael J., Ed.; And Others
In 1970 the State University System of Florida and the Division of Community Colleges inititated a statewide Social Work Education Planning Project. This project is designed to determine the current and projected manpower needs for professional and paraprofessional social work personnel and to assess the extent to which the institutions of higher education in the state are preparing graduates to meet these needs. This monograph is designed to highlight the need for further evaluation of field instruction within the area of social work education. The first section involves a discussion of manpower utilization, including a discussion of the new roles that are being assumed by human service workers from the high school level through graduate level training. The second section provides a program description of the project on delinquency prevention as well as some projections about the future role of social work in the field of corrections. In the third section evaluation is made of the differential staffing pattern utilized in the pilot and in particular focuses on the issues of team work, leadership, and the assumption of new roles in human service delivery. The fourth and final section presents a discussion of criminal justice and social welfare and curricular implications are cited. (HS)
