Occupational Reinforcer Patterns. Minnesota Studies in Vocational Rehabilitation: XXIV. First Volume.
Borgen, Fred H.; And Others
The Minnesota Studies in Vocational Rehabilitation (The Work Adjustment Project) are a continuing series of research studies focused on work adjustment problems. The primary goals are development of diagnostic tools for assessing the work adjustment potential of applicants for vocational rehabilitation, and the evaluation of work adjustment outcomes. The present monograph presents Occupational Reinforcer Patterns (ORPs) for 81 occupations, based on judgments of 2,976 supervisors of jobs in several hundred firms. The monograph presents ORP profiles, interpretive statements for each ORP, cross-references to ORPs with similar profiles, and information on similarities and differences among the 81 ORPs. Data were obtained from Minnesota Job Description Questionnaires (MJDQs) completed by supervisors, at least 20 of which were used for each occupation. Recommendations are made for the counseling uses of the ORP profiles. (BP)
