A Social-Action Approach for Planning Education.
Bolan, Richard S.; And Others
The growing complexity of urban industrial society necessitates adequate planning techniques to insure future livability, but traditional methods of training planners have emphasized technology and ignored the human element. To remedy this deficiency, training programs should be expanded to include the social and political aspects of planning. Specific additions to a planning curriculum should include human behavior and development, social psychology, organization theory, reinforcement of organizing and political skills, and planning as a social process. A period of internship for planners with supervised and instructional activities in a field agency should be mandatory. (RA)
