Coffey, John F.; Chesler, Mark
The two papers comprising this conference report serve the following purposes: (1) to alert practitioners and consumers in race relations and anti-racism endeavors to the major issues in the field; (2) to facilitate continuing dialogue; and (3) to provide impetus for a more thorough assessment of the state of the art. The first, by John F. Coffey, reflects the views of the consensus of symposium participants on the state of the art of race education/training. Among the topics discussed are the history of race relations, participant philosophies, and issues and concerns about race educators and trainers.

The paper focuses on the following questions: (1) Who are the appropriate agents or staff for training and change? (2) What are the critical elements for a training/education program? (3) What should an organizational diagnosis include? (4) What are some important components of a program design? (5) How can we insure maximum effects of a race training/education program on personal change?
