Learning on the Job. Symposium.
This document contains two papers from a symposium on learning on the job. "Professional Crisis Workers: Impact of Repeated Exposure to Human Pain and Destructiveness" (Lynn Atkinson-Tovar) examines the following topics: (1) the secondary and vicarious traumatic stress disorder that affects many professional crisis workers who are repeatedly exposed to human pain and destructiveness; (2) ways human resource development (HRD) professionals can assess vicarious traumatization in crisis workers; (3) a four-phase basic stress management model consisting of education, prevention, support, and research phases that many organizations have adopted to help employees cope with job-related stress; and (4) questions related to HRD professionals' role in helping victims of secondary and vicarious traumatic stress disorder that merit further research. "The Transfer of Technology of Highly Skilled Foreign Workers for Thai Workers in Thailand" (Boon-Anan Phinaitrup) reports on study of a sample of 350 Thai workers, foreign workers in Thailand, Thai entrepreneurs and human resource managers, and institution administrators that examined how information and education are transferred from highly skilled foreign workers to Thai employees in Thailand's manufacturing industry. The advantages and disadvantages of employing foreign workers were discussed along with the following technology transfer methods: on-the-job training; in-house training; training abroad; and training in Thailand. Both papers include substantial bibliographies. (MN)
