The Design, Execution, and Evaluation of a Recruitment and Public Education Program in Rehabilitation Counseling. Final Report.
Razik, Taher A.
The purpose of this project was to design, execute, and evaluate a film to be used as a public education program in rehabilitation counseling. The film "Will It Be You?" was produced to interest undergraduate students in a career in rehabilitation counseling and to inform the general public of the goals and services of rehabilitation counseling. Thirty-nine members of the American Counseling Association and 35 graduate students at the State University of New York at Buffalo evaluated the film and found that it stimulated interest in rehabilitation counseling. Two instruments were designed to measure the cognitive and affective impact of the film. Results of the test showed that the experimental group expressed a more positive attitude toward rehabilitation counseling and the disabled than did the control group. Sex appeared to be an important factor in attitudes expressed. Female subjects expressed more enlightened attitudes than did male subjects. (BC)
