Gordon, Katherine K.
This module on psychosocial assessment is one of a set of six developed to prepare human services workers for the changing mental health service delivery system. A total of six objectives are included to help students utilize knowledge of psychosocial principles which influence human behavior in order to assess alternatives to meet the objectives of intervention. Following a statement of the module goal, target population (human services community college students), module length (51 classroom hours), and suggested class size (15-25 students), the module contains the following seven sections: (1) a list of behavioral objectives, (2) the instructional design of the module, (3) a pretest on the module goal, (4) a list of materials for the course, (5) instructional procedures for each behavioral objective, (6) a posttest on the module goal, and (7) student feedback on the module. In addition to listing instructional procedures for each objective, the module informs the student of the estimated class time for completion, equipment needed, and how to demonstrate competency. Appended material includes a social readjustment rating scale and a sample paper and pencil test on assessment instruments. (LRA)
