Abstract:

The two-fold goal of the project was to prepare a standardized shelter management textbook and to develop an approach to shelter management training that would permit the text to serve the widest possible range of training situations. A number of individuals associated with the training of shelter managers have attested to the need of a standardized introduction to shelter management. It was felt that the development of a text would be a step towards the goal of standardized shelter management training. There were a number of problems inherent in the development of such a standardized approach. Among these problems were 1 the great diversity in shelter management students, in terms of educational background and occupation 2 the wide variation in curriculum of current shelter management training and 3 the variety of conditions in local communities, including shelter configurations, environmental, political, and social differences.
