Comprehensive Vocationally Oriented Psychotherapy: The Perspective After Fifteen Years.
Shore, Milton F.
Elements of a treatment program, Comprehensive Vocationally Oriented Psychotherapy, are presented in terms of youth contact efforts, job opportunities, community outreach, individualized teaching, program administration and job matching activities. An initial program evaluation, conducted on three levels of the boys' functioning (personality structure, cognitive functions, and overt behavioral measures) indicated significant improvement in the treated group in such areas as socialization and academic achievement. The second evaluation, a series of followup studies conducted 2, 5, 10, and 15 years after treatment indicated that interventions during adolescence produced consistent, profound, and long-lasting changes in these youth.
