Chapter 4 concerns the training process: selection and preparation abroad, orientation in the U.S., role of the development training specialist, academic preparation, and evaluation and followup. Chapter 5 describes complementary programs: community organizations, universities, special additive programs, the Michigan State University Communication Workshop, a civic participation workshop, executive management training, population/family planning seminars, and programs with private enterprise. Chapter 6 projects the orientation of participant training for the 1970s.
