Summary

A study was conducted to determine the extent and nature of existing and/or planned curricula and training programs that purport to sensitize students and workers to provide social and child protective services to minority clients. The survey of educational institutions and relevant State departments was undertaken in the eight southeastern States. Data revealed that: (1) twelve percent of the responding sources required a course(s) whose titles explicitly connote the sensitization to minority clients needs; (2) one half of the university graduate and undergraduate schools of social work having minority oriented course offerings required at least one such course of some students; and (3) six percent of the respondents offered formalized training programs to develop sensitivity to minority needs. These findings suggest that students/workers are not being prepared well by State agencies and educational institutions to serve the large proportion of cultural, racial, and linguistic minority clients for social services.
