A Three Parameter Model for Planning, Monitoring and Evaluating Human Services Field Experience. EDIC Monograph.
Feringer, F. Richard; Jacobs, Edward
A model for planning, monitoring, and evaluating human service internships and field experiences is described. The model is organized around work roles and can easily be adopted for general job evaluation beyond intern placements. Since the curriculum should contain the generalists' skills plus specialized skills representative of defined job positions, the paradigm would retain presently defined generic knowledges and skills and permit identification of job specializations. The model contains three taxonomies: client types, institution types, and work role or job types. Client types are intended to differentiate human services clients into major categories of personal problems for which help is provided. Institutions include hospitals, outpatient facilities, group homes, activity centers, education institutions, and penal settings, while job types include administration, planning, counseling, education, and outreach services. Another feature of the model is to identify specialized skills required by the job type. Finally, provisions are made for recording the basic data regarding intern identification, evaluator identification, and total numbers of hours of training. Attention is also directed to field experience training standards and implications for certification. (SW)
