Evaluation of Joint Training DVR-DPW Personnel, West Virginia and Virginia, Rehabilitation of the Disabled Welfare Applicant and/or Recipient. Final Report.
Phelps, William R.
This is a followup posttraining of 210 program participants of rehabilitation practitioners, including social case workers, rehabilitation counselors, and para-professional staff members. These rehabilitation practitioners were involved in, 'Vocational Rehabilitation of Disabled Welfare Applicants and/or Recipients,' within the States of Virginia and West Virginia. In all six training sessions, content of the curriculum was replicated. A chi-square analysis of selected demographic participant variables was related to the content of the agenda to ascertain any existing relationships. The variables evaluated were education of the participants, age, sex, months employed, work assignment, job satisfaction, and earning. Significant relationships were found to exist between the months employed and the presentation of, 'Appalachian Culture,' and the earnings level and between 'Internal and External Locus of Control,' and various selected film presentations. All other variables were found to be nonsignificant. (NTIS)
