Maximizing Your Training Efficiency: The Application of Behavioral Principles to Job Training. Training Manual for Work Supervisors.
This training manual is designed to instruct work supervisors and skills trainers of the hard-to-employ disadvantaged in the effective utilization of behavioral reinforcement principles for overcoming difficult, frequently encountered training problems. One of its primary focuses is how to train for job-required behavioral skills such as punctuality and taking criticism. Sections of the manual contain: (1) discussion of the pros and cons of utilizing a behavioral approach, (2) a series of problem solving and "real-life" practice exercises designed to develop the techniques of reward, punishment, and shaping, which are the basic principles of the behavioral approach, (3) a description of two alternatives to the complete behavioral approach, and (4) a series of hypothetical examples designed to teach the behavioral and technical skills required in actual employment.
