Human Services in the Rural Transition. A Training Packet.
Hargrove, David S.; And Others
This training manual was designed to clarify issues and provide information to help individuals and groups facilitate the development of human service delivery in response to the changes occurring in rural communities. The presentation of the material was designed to be flexible in length of presentation, subject matter, and level of detail. The manual may be used as a regular textbook, in workshop presentations, and in a train-the-trainer format. The material is divided into five modules that may be used independently. Sections on objectives, background information, and procedures for teaching precede each module. Throughout each module, a rubric is inserted to indicate appropriate places to use overheads or video segments. A case study is included which may be used in total or broken into segments as indicated by module outlines. Discussion questions and activities are given throughout the text and are also listed at the end of each module. Individual modules deal with: (1) History of the Rural Economic Transition; (2) Human Consequences of the Rural Crisis; (3) Human Service Response; (4) Network Systems for Rural Services; and (5) Resources. The Resources module contains information of rural programs, farm mediation, rural newsletters and journals, films and videos, community mental health centers, books and articles, and the glossary.
