The Third Annual Pennsylvania Conference on Post-Secondary Occupational Education.
Gillie, Angelo C., Ed.
Papers presented at the third annual conference on post-secondary paraprofessional education held at Pennsylvania State University in November 1971 centered around the human service occupations. This rapidly developing area of paraprofessional education will offer increasing job opportunities in the future in health, social service activities, and other fields. The conference's major objective was to provide an exchange of ideas among participating educators as to the role of 2-year colleges in planning programs in social- and health-related paraprofessional occupations. This report contains the conference program, registrants, evaluation, group discussions, and texts of eight papers. Topics covered by the papers include statewide planning for delivery of human and health services, health personnel training, licensing and certification, human services programs, and accreditation.
