Foundations for a Curriculum in Human Services Work.
Rusnell, Dale; Phillips, Chris
This report provides information to be used as the basis for developing training programs related to human services work in the private sector. It describes occupational tasks performed by human services workers in non-government agencies, outlines the range of tasks undertaken, and suggests specific skills required by these workers. The report consists of two sections. The first describes the development of a skills profile chart that outlines the skills required by human services workers in the private sector. These tasks in the DACUM (Developing a Curriculum) process are discussed: developing DACUM Chart #1, testing the validity of DACUM Chart #1, modifying DACUM Chart #1, and preparing the final DACUM Chart. The second section suggests specific knowledge and abilities that are necessary to perform each of the occupational tasks listed in the skills profile. The 94 main objectives are each listed on a separate page. Each page offers the following information: job component (relations with clients, relations with own agency, or relations with the community); area of competence; the main objective; enabling objectives; and notes to instructors. Appendixes include Skills Profile Charts #1 and #2 and workers' and supervisors' questionnaires. (YLB)
