Competency-Based In-Service Training in Recreation for the Aged.
Leitner, Michael Jay
As leisure services facilities have expanded with the growth in numbers of older adults, there has been a corresponding need for personnel trained in recreational work with the aged. From survey responses regarding roles and related functions, competencies for these recreational workers were prioritized and subsequently used as the basis for developing an in-service training program for entry level personnel providing leisure services to non-institutionalized older adults. (Although geographically specific, the training program outline and components are adaptable for use by counselors and recreation directors.) (Author/BMW)
