Training and Technical Assistance To Support Family-Centered, Integrated Services Reform. Meeting Highlights and Background Briefing Report (Washington, D.C., July 18, 1993).
Cohen, Elena; Ooms, Theodora
This document begins by presenting highlights of a seminar held in June of 1993 to describe innovative training programs that focus on interprofessional and family-centered forms of service delivery in the public sector and to discuss some of the issues, barriers, and challenges. Following these highlights is a background briefing report on training and technical assistance to support family-centered, integrated services reform. In the first sections of this briefing report, current trends, selected activities, and issues and questions in four major areas are discussed. The four areas include professional university-based training; inservice, on-the-job training; training for new careers; and technical assistance. Each section draws upon and briefly describes the related activities of a number of current initiatives that promise to have a sustained impact. Identifying information about the organizations sponsoring these initiatives is listed in the back of the report. Nine ambitious inservice training efforts, statewide in scope, are described; these nine training efforts are an integral part of ongoing reform efforts and several of them are linked with federal program reforms. Some recent trends in federal training programs are reviewed and suggestions are made for a number of ways in which the federal government could play a constructive leadership role in enhancing these new directions in training the human services workforce. The report ends with a list of 54 organizational resources and approximately 70 key references. (NB)
