Interagency Training Project, August 31, 1981. Final Report.
McLaughlin, John A.; Christensen, Margaret
The final report summarizes goals and accomplishments of a project which developed and field tested materials to facilitate interagency cooperation in serving exceptional persons. The project developed a manual (which is appended) designed to acquaint the reader with major research findings on interagency agreement; describe a model for interpersonal conflict management, the lack of which was found to be the most prevalent barrier to successful agreements; and identify resources for local efforts. A simulation game (also appended) was intended to acquaint participants with conflict management. Field testing of both the manual and the simulation game indicated areas of needed revision but revealed generally positive reactions. The appendixes, which constitute the bulk of the document, include in addition to the manual and the simulation activity, an executive summary of the project's first year and a field reader evaluation package.
