Training Seminar, Health Professionals. Final Report.
Beasley, Ruth A.; Gebhard, Paul H.
This final report describes three 10-day training programs for health professionals which were conducted in 1975, 1976, and 1977. All included a mixture of general sex behavior information and special health and mental health topics, methods of presentation (e.g.; lecture, panel, audiovisual, etc.), and types of presentors (e.g.; researchers, service providers, service consumers, etc.). All three programs included an optional two-day attitude reassessment workshop. Each successive program was altered in accordance with two main sources of suggestions - - the evaluations of the participants in the preceding program, and recommendations of staff members concerning trends in public interest, new research findings, and reports from other training programs. The "model" program is, therefore, three programs offered one time each to three different groups of participants. A "training the trainers" effect is described. Project implications important to planners of training programs in human sexuality are drawn together in a set of guidelines. All materials developed for the project are included. (Author/JLL)
