Social Workers and Manpower Programs: An Experimental Approach to Professional Training and Curriculum Development. Final Report 1970-1973.
This conference report is one of three volumes being issued by the Laboratory for Community Programming at the conclusion of its experimental program. This third volume is a comprehensive report on the three-year Laboratory project, including descriptions of student field work experiences during the Laboratory's definitive last year. This laboratory experiment was organized in recognition of the increasing demand for manpower specialists created by federally funded programs and of the need for unification between social workers and manpower organizations. This program performed three major functions: (1) the development of a training program in which graduate students in social work served internships in diverse community and federal manpower organizations; (2) the availability of technical assistance to these organizations in terms of community organizing, program and staff development, and mediating; and (3) the initiation of a social work curriculum devised to familiarize the student with the world of work and with the coordination of manpower programs and social work through a new approach to field work. Six essays by students involved in the experimental field work program reflect positive results for both the students and the organizations involved in the laboratory project. The appendix lists texts, course outlines, related papers and a proposal for a manpower development and training institute. (KC)
