An Orientation Workshop for Displaced Homemakers: A How-To Handbook for Service-Providers.
Eastes, Meg Williams
This handbook offers a field-tested model workshop designed specifically for vocational education institutions interested in providing services for displaced homemakers. The three-hour format brings together displaced homemakers and service providers (vocational educators, adult education programs, federally funded programs, and community agencies). The workshop informs displaced homemakers about programs and services that can assist them in meeting their training and employment needs and allows service providers to better understand their concerns and needs. A workshop model describes materials, staff, and the three program components: (1) displaced homemakers spend two hours with facilitator who explains workshop and conducts exercises, (2) service provider panelists participate in awareness activity, the availability of which is cited (second hour), and (3) panel discussion (third hour). Recruitment techniques are then suggested. The next section describes actual workshop activities and exercises. Other contents include results of a needs assessment at a field test workshop, recommendations for program for displaced homemakers, and suggested resources. An appendix provides a complete list of materials and sample handouts which should be included in a folder for each workshop participant. (YLB)
