The National Training System: A Year of Transition. 1981-1982. Drug Program Report.
Contee, Jerome, A., Ed.
This report, the final publication of the Career Development Center (CDC), contains selected highlights of the transitional activities undertaken in 1981-82 by the CDC and the National Drug Abuse Center (NDAC). The theme of these activities has been "Capacity Building," defined as the ability of the states to continue and maintain the core of organizational capabilities necessary to maintain the quality substance abuse planning, training, and resource development programs formerly administered at the federal level by the National Training System components. Highlights of the activities of the four Regional Support Centers which phased out their operations in June 1982 are also included. The first section briefly reviews NDAC goals and programs, lists regional activity priorities, and reviews the American Indian Special Issues workshop; the centralized, training-of-trainer events; materials development; and the Network Strategy Task Force workshop. The contents of the National Guide to Educational Credit for Training Programs, and the annual evaluation and accreditation of educational programs dealing with drug abuse are detailed. Program highlights of the Western, the Central, the Southwest, and the Southeast Regional Support Centers are described in the final four sections, and focus on activities provided to each of the states in each region during the 1981-82 year.
