Introduction to Vocational Rehabilitation Services: An Outline for a Course of Study.
Phelps, William B.; Kirchgessner, John B.
The purpose of this course of study is to serve as a guide for providing newly employed vocational rehabilitation agency personnel with educational experiences that better prepare the trainees to serve themselves, their clients, their agency, and their community. The course reflects the belief that generic educational material and experiences are necessary for newly employed rehabilitation personnel; and that race flexibility in coverage is maintained to insure the program staff the opportunities to respond to trainees' requests and needs. The training process itself attempts to integrate those elements considered most conducive to effective learning: (1) provide identification models for effective functioning through the interactional process with the program staff; (2) provide the conditions or atmosphere that will afford the trainee an experiential base calculated to enhance self-development and understanding; and (3) to provide that which is taught and reinforced didactically attempts to influence trainee behaviors and attitudes. References and numerous film abstracts are included. (Author/SES)
