Introduction to Human Services, Chapter III. Video Script Package, Text, and Audio Script Package.
Miami-Dade Community Coll., FL.
Video, textual, and audio components of the third module of a multi-media, introductory course on Human Services are presented. The module packages, developed at Miami-Dade Community College, deal with technology, social change, and problem dependencies. A video cassette script is first provided that explores the "traditional,""inner," and "other directed" character types identified by David Reisman in his work "The Lonely Crowd"; annotations describe the accompanying video frames. A chapter of the text, "Introduction to Human Services," is then presented. This chapter discusses the concept of change, the specialization resulting from technological advancements, and the impact this specialization has had upon: (1) the family structure, (2) the role of education, (3) the information explosion and mass media, and (4) the growth of surplus, underemployed populations with new needs for human services. This is followed by an audio script dealing with the cultural lag behind technological change and the concomitant problems of rising unemployment and the need to update--via human services practitioners--social/welfare institutions. Each component package is accompanied by a general description, a list of objectives, a multiple-choice quiz, topics for discussion, and an annotated bibliography. (JP)
