Developing a National Community College Program for Human Services/Drug Abuse Workers.
Olson, Joseph L.; And Others
A project to design a model curriculum development guide for a broadly transferable Associate Degree program in Human Services for drug abuse workers was initiated at Miami-Dade Community College (Florida). The curriculum was intended for implementation through a national consortium of community colleges. Central to the program, which would recruit recently rehabilitated substance abusers as students, was the concept of the "Program Manager", whose role would include being an academic counselor for student participants, program coordinator, academic negotiator, and student support person. Criteria for appointment as a Program Manager and determinants for selection of community colleges as consortium members were established, the latter emphasizing accreditation and credit articulation with a senior institution, curriculum flexibility, and urban locale. Learning objectives were developed in terms of the 14 roles identified for drug abuse workers and were categorized as Generic Human Services or Substance Abuse Specific, with instructional concerns in habilitation and problem dependencies. Pending funding for program implementation, limited development of instructional material is currently in progress. (RT)
