The Training and Validation of Youth-Preferred Social Behaviors of Child Care Personnel.
Willner, Alan G.; And Others
This paper deals with the training of personnel in the delivery of child-care services to institutionalized Youth. The emphasis is on training personnel in interaction behaviors that are preferred by youth themselves. Two studies are reported. The first determined what types of interactions the youth preferred, and validated these preferences on larger samples. The second study outlines a program designed to train "teaching parents: in these youth-preferred interaction behaviors. It demonstrates that behavioral styles can be modified in the direction desired. The authors feel that modification of the behavior of youth care personnel will make it more likely for youth to move in the direction of socially desirable behaviors and goals. (NG)
