Building Villages To Raise Our Children: Staffing. Guides to Comprehensive Family Support Services.
Hochberg, Mona R.
This volume, part five of a six-part report, is a three-part guide that offers practical advice for recruiting, training, and managing staff for a family-support program; it includes discussions about typical problems and the ways practitioners have chosen to resolve them. Part 1 discusses how to determine the type of staff needed and how to hire them. Additional areas include the question of whether to use paraprofessionals and how to interview and hire them. Part 2 covers the reality of staff management: staff empowerment, compensation, work-environment considerations, staff evaluation, preventing burnout, and influencing outside-agency staff. Part 3 focuses on staff training, including orienting new staff, designing inservice training, funding training programs, teaching about multiculturalism, and using case studies. The guide concludes with a list of resources for further reading and information. (Contains 29 references.) (GLR)
