Educating the Trainers. Proceedings of a Conference for Nurse Educationalists in Mental Handicap (University of Keele, April 21-23, 1978).
Hegarty, J. R., Ed.; Winter, S. P., Ed.
The aim of this conference was to consider current thinking on behavior modification and social education, and to examine ways in which the psychological and educational concepts and skills involved in these approaches could best be taught to nurses. Over 40 nurse tutors, clinical teachers, and inservice training officers attended the conference. Formal lectures were given by a sociologist and several psychologists working in university and health service settings. Participants also made short presentations of projects relevant to the theme of the conference. Major topics covered include: memory, hospital care, social education and normalization, behavior modification in hospitals and communities, reactions to an audiotaped teaching course, and the contribution of research to understanding of audiovisual media for teaching and training.
