Proceedings--Workshop on Social Work Education and the Practice of Social Work in Rural and Northern Areas, (Winnepeg, March 15-16, 1976).
Zeglinski, Joan; And Others
Major themes of a workshop on social work education and practice in rural and northern areas of Canada held in 1976 were: (1) purposes and goals of social work education; (2) needs, wants, and aspirations of rural/northern people; (3) social work education for professional competence; (4) continuing education; and (5) organization and administration of social work programs. This bilingual report (English-French) is in three parts: summary of workshop discussion, summary of social work programs in more than 10 Canadian schools, and resources and bibliography. Discussion included the need for teaching materials which would bring rural Canadian life into perspective, curriculum, accessibility to higher education, rural field placements, alternative delivery systems (part-time study, decentralization, use of media for communication), course content, teaching methodologies, skills students need, and differences in urban and rural social work. The resources section contains a partly annotated list of periodicals and newsletters, Canadian newspapers, research, resource, and information centers, "American" and "International" resources, organizations and associations, study kits, nonprint resources, bibliographies, libraries, catalogues, rural and ethnic cookbooks, and conferences. In the partly annotated bibliography are publications and films relating to rural development. (RS)
