Self-Training Modules for Public Assistance-Vocational Rehabilitation Teams.
The set of five self-training modules was developed as a companion document to the Institute on Rehabilitation Services study on rehabilitation of disabled public assistance recipients. The training sessions were designed primarily for use by teams working together in this priority area, especially at the level of the counselor/social worker teams. They cover: problem identification, information/communication, client centered systems (use of decision making and feedback), evaluation/planning for service delivery, and personal attitudes/values. Although self-administered, the modules are meant for group use while the team is being trained. Each person responds to a set of questions and the differences in response demonstrate role differences within the team, thereby helping to sharpen concepts of roles and their interplay. Differences in viewpoints about service delivery help members of the team to begin to understand one another. The report provides suggestions on how team supervisors might use the course, and lists materials needed for it. Each of the five sessions takes three hours of student group time. It is recommended that the sessions be spread over several weeks so there will be assimilation time between sessions. (NTIS)
