Job Roles in Human Services. Volume 8: Core Competencies. Task Analysis in Human Services Special Project.
This book of objectives, one of a series designed to provide a competency-based analysis of employment categories in human services, deals with core competencies necessary for human service workers as a group. Addressed in the individual sections of the volume are the following skill areas: client interactions, service delivery, personal and professional development, work management skills, public relations, policy and procedures, legal responsibility, human development, and communication skills. Each section contains a main objective, a series of enabling objectives, and ratings for the scale of importance and the levels of independence measures for the following human services occupations: financial assistance worker, rehabilitation officer, health care worker, family support worker, child care counselor, social worker, and district supervisor. The independence scale indicates the degree of supervision that an individual could expect when performing the job task. The scale of importance designates each objective as being either prerequisite (i.e., knowledge or skills that individuals must bring with them to be adequately prepared for the job role), critical (i.e., objectives that are essential to competent performance on the job--areas of skill or knowledge that individuals must possess to develop during their work experience), or enrichment (i.e., objectives that are not essential but add to a comprehensive understanding of the job and more flexible and skillful job performance). Also included in the volume are a list of definitions, a job profile chart, and a discussion of the methodology used to identify the core objectives. (MN)
