Adults, according to Knowles, require learning situations adapted to their need to solve specific problems, an andragogical mode of learning based upon self-dependence. This paper reports the results of a training course for Children's Aid Society workers that was designed and implemented utilizing andragogical principles. The course included a research design. It was found, as predicted, that CAS workers improved their self-actualizing tendencies; they also increased their capacity to understand themselves and others. As was expected, the workers preferred those training experiences that enlisted their involvement and participation over those of a less participative nature.
