Training Manual for Human Service Technicians Working with Older People. Part 1, Trainers. Part 2, Trainees.
Lowy, Louis
An outgrowth of a Greater Boston project, this manual for the training of human service nonprofessionals for work with older adults is divided into two volumes. Part 1, for trainers, covers qualifications and sources of training personnel; curriculum planning; training objectives (generally expressed in terms of attitudes, knowledge, and skills); training methods and techniques (including lectures, buzz sessions, discussion, workshops, role playing and field work); and overall program planning and organization. Part 2, which contains curriculum materials for trainees, discussed major problems of aging and the aged in American society; developmental processes, needs, and strengths of aging; resources to meet the needs of older adults in the community; and approaches to working with older people at the individual, group, and community levels. Also included are bibliographies and films, advisory committee members, selected outlines of training programs, sample forms, a stereotype scale on aging, and the historical background of the manual.
