New Careers: A Manual of Organization and Development.
Klein, William; And Others
Based upon material drawn from experimental programs at Howard University Institute for Youth Studies (1964-67), this manual is intended for those wishing to train workers as nonprofessionals in the human services (health, education, mental health, recreation, child care, research, and community organization) and is designed to be used with SP 002 033, SP 002 034, SP 002 035, and other related curriculum manuals on specific occupational and skill areas. While the manual is predicated upon core-group training, i.e., all trainees receive a base of common generic training, the authors nonetheless recommend the manual, on the basis of its generic approach, for training programs not using the core-group model. Five major topics are covered: (1) the nonprofessional worker in human services; (2) job development; (3) qualifications, recruitment, and selection (trainee qualifications and the recruitment and selection processes); (4) training (training methods, training content, relationships with employing agencies, duration and completion of training, training guidelines, and training problems); and (5) research and program evaluation (the purposes and nature of evaluation, the duration of evaluative studies, and the research staff). Included is a 17-item bibliography. (SG)
