Targets for In-Service Training; Report of a Seminar (Washington, D.C., May 4-5 1967)
In this inservice training seminar for correctional administrators, the major focus was on the definition and the objectives of inservice training, selection of training techniques and methods, and the evaluation of training programs. The intent was not to develop specific content, but to suggest general training principles and guidelines for correctional agencies. Basic components of training programs (from need identification to evaluation and reinforcement); functional means of changing skills and other kinds of behavior; applications of such specific learning methods as T groups, inbasket problems, and on the job training; and criteria for assessing the effectiveness of training and judging the need for evaluation research were among the areas of discussion. A sociologist recounted his experiences in training employment counselors and VISTA volunteers in Colorado. Finally, the magnitude of the training problem was evaluated with reference to correctional personnel and existing correctional systems. (Also included are a flow chart of a training program in operation, a training design for the hard-core unemployed, and other illustrations.) (ly)
