The Dictionary of Occupational Titles in Vocational Assessment: A Self Study Manual.
Robinson, Charles W.
This self-instructional manual is designed to assist professionals in vocational rehabilitation in the effective use of the fourth edition (1977) of the Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT) and closely related materials (i.e., Guide for Occupational Exploration, Worker Trait Group Guide, Career Information System Guide, and Handbook for Analyzing Jobs). Twenty units are included in the manual. Unit 1 shows how occupational information is related to vocational rehabilitation and discusses how to tell when rehabilitation services have been completed. Units 2 through 8 are designed to give a complete understanding of the uses of the DOT. Units 9 through 20 describe how to use the materials that supplement the DOT to compare eight characteristics in clients with those required for various occupations. Each unit follows a typical format--unit title, unit objectives, unit content, and unit exercises. Appended material consists of the following sections, designed to aid in completing the manual: References, Guides, Charts, and Forms; Answers to Exercises; Self-assessment Materials; Two Planning Models for Vocational Assessment; and Comparison of the Guide for Occupational Exploration and the Worker Trait Group Guide.
