Proceedings of the National Conference on the Social Content of Interdisciplinary Core Curricula in University Affiliated Programs (Columbus, Ohio, July 14-17, 1980).
Parnicky, Joseph J., Ed.
Five papers are presented from a 1980 conference on the role of social work in the core curriculum of University Affiliated Facilities (UAFs), centers designed to train practitioners in working with handicapped students. F. Cyphert ("Some Personal Observations") suggests approaches to the development of a core curriculum and notes the importance of both early exposure to interdisciplinary practices and field experiences. In "A Prescribed Mandate," R. Hormuth reviews the history of the interdisciplinary approach and discusses the beginnings of the UAF movement. A. Carten considers the needs in a core curriculum to address issues facing minority handicapped students and their families ("An Issue within A Pluralistic Society"). Areas of social work content relevant to a core curriculum are identified in "A Responsibility of a Center" by B. Borland. In the final paper, "A Multi-Dimensional Framework," J. Parnicky presents a model with components of prevention (primary, secondary, and tertiary); humanism (life saving, life sustaining, and life enhancing); and social systems (person, family, and society).
