An Initial Practicum Idea.
Tunick, Roy H.; Flanagan, W. Malcolm
Using the educably mentally retarded clients can aid students' learning in the facilitation of an effective helping process. The practicum students appear to be less threatened in their initial contacts with such clients and yet, as a group, the mentally retarded present needs similar to all clients, e.g., adjustment in interpersonal relationships and self-esteem, problem solving ability, anxiety reduction, and educational and vocational plans. Undergraduate rehabilitation students trained in the Carkhuff model and in characteristics of the mentally retarded were placed with institutionalized mentally retarded persons for the purpose of developing a facilitative helping process. The training procedures for the program, both didactic and experimental, are identified and described. (Author)
