Hanson, Doris E.
The 197 participants, representing all areas of home economics, attended a 3-day national workshop on the training and utilization of auxiliary workers within the field of home economics. Workshop activities included a symposium of auxiliary personnel employed as aides in home economics-related occupations and group discussions which followed these major presentations: (1) "New Job Revolution" by J. Farmer, (2) "Legislation Affecting Auxiliary Personnel" by J. F. Jennings, (3) "Stresses, Strains, and Joys of Utilizing Auxiliary Personnel" by S. S. Steinberg, (4) "Guidelines for Designing New Careers" by S. A. Fine, (5) "Some Aspects of Leadership" by M. F. Clark, (6) "New Concepts for Household Occupations" by U. S. A. Bowen, and (7) "Societal Needs to be Served Through Auxiliary Personnel" by E. W. Schwieder. Evaluations made daily, at the end of the workshop, and 6 months later revealed that the objectives had been met to some degree by the end of the workshop and that a few studies, surveys, and programs had been implemented by the 6-month followup. Lists of participants, preparatory materials, texts of major presentations, evaluation instruments, and packet materials are appended. (SB)
