An Overview of the Work Progress Report. Manpower for the Human Services.
Kassel, Myrna Bordelon
This monograph is the first of a series summarizing the work progress of the Human Services Manpower Career Center, a special research and development project funded by the U. S. Department of Labor. During its first 2 years of operation, the Center has: (1) undertaken basic occupational research to identify the human services occupations in the Chicago metropolitan area and to develop a conceptual framework for perceiving and structuring jobs in this expanding industry, (2) studied the manpower utilization patterns of several state human services agencies and designed career systems to provide maximum opportunities and new workers, (3) designed a core curriculum for entry and middle level workers in human services agencies, and (4) developed a model for neighborhood-based child care services in the inner city. In addition to describing the origins, objectives, staff, and work progress, the monograph also includes a brief summary of the content of the remaining monographs, available as VT 016 354 and VT 016 356-016 359 in this issue.
