Missouri Valley Staff Development Project for Employment Security Personnel. Volume I.
Berry, Jane B.
This project involved employment service personnel in a training program of staff development experiences which attempted to emphasize the special skills required for the expanding human resources mission of the employment service. Particular attention focused on staff relationships, the image of the employment service in the community, specialized techniques for working with client groups, and special problems of the client constituency. Implementation of the 12-month demonstration project was to be accomplished in the following three interrelated phases: (1) field investigation and training program, (2) staff development training program, and (3) project evaluation and report. Basic components of the training included Group Process (which was felt to be an effective component to be used only under the guidance of an experienced professional), Participant Seminars, Consultant Sessions, Field Work Activity, and "Model Employment Service" (none of which was totally dependent upon one another for effective use). It is felt that the training endeavor reported here can provide a solid foundation upon which meaningful non-traditional training experiences can be constructed. (Author/CJ)
