A total of approximately 36 representatives of state, interstate, and federal agencies; universities; national voluntary associations; industry; and the staff of the Joint Commission on Correctional Manpower and Training participated in the conference with the purpose of exploring the area of inservice training for personnel working in the rehabilitation of the public offender. Papers presented in the document are: (1) "Overview of Inservice Training" by Carl Kludt, (2) "Training Methods" by Lyman Randall, (3) "Colorado Training Programs" by Howard Higman, (4) "Organizational Arrangements for Training" by David Jelinek, and (5) "Evaluation of Inservice Training" by Carol Weiss. A brief statement of reaction and a summary of discussion from the floor follow each paper. Recommendations, presented in an overall summary presentation, include: (1) emphasizing training for work in the community, (2) stressing skills for interagency goal-setting, (3) giving attention to the correctional worker's role with offenders, who presently do not get into the correctional system or are dropped out in the screening process, and (4) developing new approaches to inservice training evaluation.
