The Structured Use of Vocational Behavior Media in Vocational Evaluation Programming.
Currie, Lawrence E.
This is the report of a project, "Using Vocational Behavior Films to Improve the Vocational Awareness of Vocational Evaluation Clients," which was designed to produce a "how to do it" publication, flexible enough for use in a variety of rehabilitation settings. A Research and Training Center was implemented at the Minneapolis Rehabilitation Center (MRC) where the Vocational Opinion Index (VOI) was used to diagnose attitudes of disadvantaged youths toward their jobs and job training. MRC personnel constructed a small vocational media oriented group with structured role playing. From this they learned to interpret the VOI vocational diagnosis for future programing requirements. Results show that the use of vocational behavior media did improve youths' attitudes toward themselves and their jobs. Data is presented in four tables and an operation guide is appended. (AP)
