Interpersonal Skill Training to Facilitate the Employment of Handicapped Students (9/1/79-8/31/80).
Flugman, Bert; And Others
This report contains a narrative description of a project to produce a manual for use by student personnel staff to enhance the employment-related interpersonal skills of handicapped community college students. The first two sections overview the project and discuss the need for the project as reflected in the research, literature, and a project-conducted review of interpersonal skills training systems. In the third section the project design is considered. Focus is on activities leading to assembly of a draft of the training manual which was organized around four elements--micro skills, complex interactions, work related encounters, and critical situations. The fourth section briefly outlines evaluation of the manual through expert review and tryouts. Appended materials, amounting to approximately one-half of the report, include (1) A Summary of Representative Interpersonal Skill Systems; (2) critical situation survey materials; (3) table of contents of the draft manual (15 chapters), including this information: major themes and issues in the chapter; work, school, and socially related; and disability related; and (4) expert reader review forms. (Project-developed materials are appended). (YLB)
