|Preparation of professional helpers for the
problem of deviancy
Plan of a three years vocational training at Belvárosi Tanoda
by József Solymosy and Edit Győrik
|Since the deviancy is a really existing phenomenon in society
and it is growing year by year, there should be professionals dealing
with it. Unfortunately, in the education of teachers is lacking
a course on this complicated problem, even though they would be
the key persons in its prevention and primary treatment.
Based on the great amount of practical experiences the Tanoda worked
out a three-year course on deviancy especially for would be teacher-helpers.
This special pedagogy can be learnt only through own experiences.
The first year is that of getting information and basic knowledge
about the principals of the atmosphere of helping attitude, the
complex case-management, the different kinds of intervention; then
all these questions are subjects of analysis in a group-form.
The second year is that of the adaptation of knowledge through practical
work with a client chosen by them controlled by the whole group.
In the third year the practical knowledge and skills must be integrated
into students' own institute.
During the course the students must get acquainted with some special
concepts of this kind of work - used at the Tanoda -, they have
to learn about the forms of deviant behavior, the personality development,
the person-centered way of thinking, the love, the acceptation etc.
Having finished the course the professionals at their own institutes
with their colleagues are to form a group for analysis of cases,
and if necessary, a group for prevention and treatment of deviancy.
