The Department of Labor funded a technical assistance contract with the National Rehabilitation Association to develop methodologies for increasing opportunities for handicapped people to become productive by training personnel to work effectively with the handicapped. This volume was designed to help administrators, program planners, training personnel, and paraprofessionals in human services agencies in applying "new careers" training concepts in vocational rehabilitation. An orientation and overview in developing, maintaining, and implementing new career/paraprofessional training programs is provided. Included are concepts that underlie the training and supervision of disadvantaged people as new careerists in rehabilitation, including entry level and upgrading positions, as well as major issues in the career development and training of trainers and supervisors. Models are suggested for the greater utilization of untapped human resources to create a more effective system of service delivery. (Author/AG)
