Benswanger, Ellen G.; And Others
This paper describes the core curriculum, a new concept in continuing educaton by which relevant professional and clinical resources in an urban university can be made accessible to personnel in mental health service provider agencies in rural areas. An outline is presented of three curricula, including: (1) Financial Management; (2) Personnel Management; and (3) Program Evaluation. A detailed description of the development, content, and format of the curriculum on "Basic Skills in the Assessment and Treatment of Children and Youth" is given. Materials are included which illustrate the needs assessment, selection of content, practicum placements, and periodic evaluation. The reciprocal nature of the planning tasks and the educational process are emphasized. (Author/JAC)
