This progress report summarizes research, training, cooperative, regional advisory council, and special project activities conducted by the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center of the Stout Vocational Rehabilitation Institute from February 1980 through January 1981. Eleven research projects (four involving rehabilitation resources development and management, six dealing with vocational evaluation, and one on vocational adjustment) are summarized. Reports on thirty-three training projects (thirteen continuing, fourteen new, and six proposal projects) are presented. (Training project topics include vocational adjustment services, vocational evaluation, benefits utilization, law and the handicapped, vocational rehabilitation, job placement and job readiness, and counselor utilization of vocational evaluation services.) Described in a section devoted to relationships with public and voluntary agencies are inter- and intradepartmental efforts, state vocational rehabilitation agency relationships, relationships with state social service agencies, relationships with regional offices, cooperative efforts with other agencies and facilities, and relationships with consumer groups. Activities of the regional advisory council are outlined, and the origin and current status of the council and the purpose of its meetings are explained. Three special projects (a workshop on training for utilization of similar benefits, a national rehabilitation facility personnel needs study, and an institute on rehabilitation issues) are discussed.
