Malchon, Margaret J.
This module on techniques of intervention is one of a set of six developed to prepare human services workers for the changing mental health service delivery system. Following notes on the target population (community college students), module length (51 class 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. A total of nine objectives are included to help students utilize social service delivery systems and the basic concepts of a variety of intervention techniques. A major component is an experimental laboratory activity in which the student plans and implements an eight-week group experience for a small group of clients/patients. 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 the techniques of intervention laboratory description and a team individualized treatment plan outline. (LRA)
