Rogawski, Alexander S.
Paper One discusses a training program for community mental health workers which was developed utilizing the "New Careers" concept in which the poor are trained to serve the poor. The intention is to share the lessons learned through the generic training program with others engaged in New Career Training Programs. A description of the training facilities is presented followed by a discussion of the four phase training program. The second paper, on a model career development program, is a description of a program designed to increase relevant knowledge, develop specific skills, and foster attitudes appropriate for the provision of effective human services. The first part of the report is an introduction dealing with the needs, objectives, overview, and methods of training. The second part is concerned with curriculum and aspects such as understanding human behavior, crisis intervention, and working with groups. (Author/BW)
