Factors affecting faculty and curriculum development in departments of psychology, psychiatry, nursing, and social work.

Factors affecting faculty and curriculum development in departments of psychology, psychiatry, nursing, and social work.

Abstract

Boston University's (BU) Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation received a grant from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) to develop methods of disseminating a model curriculum for working with persons with severe psychiatric disability. Based on the experiences that we have had with the project thus far, several factors can be identified initially that increase the likelihood that the new curriculum can be introduced into graduate programs and that faculty can be developed to teach the new courses: faculty readiness, credibility of the curriculum content, compatibility with the present structure, contribution to fulfilling a perceived need, and feasibility of incorporating the new content. This chapter discusses these factors as well as a conclusions to date in the project. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA, all rights reserved)
