Training Manual for Student Service Program Development.
Moore, Marv; Delworth, Ursula
This Training Manual for Student Service Program Development is being published by the WICHE program Improving Mental Health Services on Western Campuses as a result of work done on a grant from the Experimental and Special Training Branch of the National Institute of Mental Health. The manual presents processes used during on-site campus applications of the Program Development Model. The Program Development Model encompasses ideas and recommendations of task forces that were convened during the first three years of the grant. Membership of the task forces represented all segments of the university community. Because training, in one form or another, is so often generic to student service programs, the WICHE program decided to concentrate its efforts on the systematic development of training programs. Training, as defined in this model includes training for student service personnel at all levels, but focuses on programs that train students to improve their academic, interpersonal/social, or vocational choice skills. With guidelines established, the next three years of the grant (1973-1976) concentrated first on the testing of a model that would put into practice a systematic approach for the development of student service training programs and then on the preparation of a manual for the model's use.
