Clinical Training Grant for the Development of Minority and Disadvantaged Students.
The clinical training program was designed to train minority Master's-level social work students to work with the chronically mentally ill. Specialized training centers were developed through collaborative relationships with three community-based agencies serving predominantly minority populations. The interagency relationships established for the program in turn resulted in enhanced linkages between ethnic communities and an enhanced curriculum. During the 3-year grant period, the 13 participating students received stipends and tuition awards while completing an educationally-focused field work placement at one of the participating agencies. Four part-time grant faculty with expertise in mental health services and services to ethnic minorities provided classroom instruction, supervised students in field placements, and participated in curriculum development. Field instructors, and social workers employed at participating agencies, were instrumental in developing and supervising the agency learning experience. (Author/MSE)
