Socanic Coaching Manual.
Saskatchewan NewStart, Inc., Prince Albert.
Preparation of Socanics (para professionals such as teacher's aides, social work aides, court workers, and recreation workers) for entry development in social institutions is the purpose of this training manual. Generic skills have been identified and are clustered into five areas which form the curriculum. They are: (1) communication processes (writing, speaking, interviewing, etc.); (2) clerical (record keeping, office machines); (3) human relations (with the professional, the client, the organization, and fellow workers); (4) human growth and development; and (5) personal. Following the completion of the core, students may select a short course stressing the special skills needed in individual areas or may get the skills through on-the-job training. Many of the basic instructional tools needed to teach the course are included in the manual, as well as procedures, copies of all projectuals, lists of materials which can be obtained locally, and lists of films and printed materials and where they can be obtained. Jobs for Socanics are described briefly. (MS)
