Guilfoy, Vivian M.; And Others
This final report describes Project Second Look that focused public awareness on training and employment needs of displaced homemakers and stimulated development of services to help them achieve economic independence. Section 1 is an executive summary overviewing the program and reflecting on project experience. The work of the project is discussed in section 2. The consultant panel and their work is addressed as is the state-of-the-art review that guided development of subsequent products. Discussion of stimulating service delivery through print materials focuses on important elements in the development sequence, characteristics and content of the resulting products, and distribution efforts. These products are described: brochure, resource guide for vocational educators and planners, manual on vocational counseling for displaced homemakers, and promotional leaflet. Stimulation of service delivery through person-to-person encounters is discussed in terms of five regional meetings for vocational educators and other service deliverers and a national conference of service clubs and women's organizations. Activities are summarized that served as outreach mechanisms to displaced homemakers and employers, specifically the three public service announcements and their distribution. Appendixes, amounting to approximately one-half of the report, include brochures, correspondence, agendas, and scripts of the public service announcements. (YLB)
