The Institute of Experiential Training: A Training Program for Drug Abuse Counselors
There existed a need to provide a meaningful sequence of training for employees of county commissions on alcohol and drug abuse. This was particularly true in the area of counseling and therapy, since the service base was emerging in this direction.
It was determined that it was unrealistic to expect the traditional training approach out of the state office would meet the many and diversified needs of the county commissions in our state. This was especially true in situations that require a developmental training sequence. Service delivery demands make it unrealistic to expect personnel from these programs to meet training attendance requirements. This was determined by the training division when it offered a six (6) month course in values clarification which met one time per month. Attendance at these sessions was irregular.
