Abstract:

Recapping briefly. The Army is still basically an organization of people with a demand and need for human services. The Behavioral Science Specialist is found working throughout this human service delivery system. HisHer training is intensive but inadequate in fully preparing him to meet the tasks required of him in the field. Readily available, in depth, professional supervision is essential if the system is to function adequately. Finally, efforts are being made to improve both the course input and output. These changes, it is believed, will over time produce a more effective developmental model of paraprofessional utilization, and a more effective mental health delivery system.
