The Expanded Placement Process. Work Center Staff Training Programs.
Woods, James; And Others
The manual describes the Focus Expanded Placement Process, an approach to implementing training programs in sheltered work centers. Trainers are offered solutions to common problems, with sections on the following topics: breaking down initial resistance to training; individualizing training; creating a learning atmosphere; making training relevant and practicable for each work center; and assessing workshop attitudes toward placement prior to the implementation of training. An overview of the focus approach is followed by individual chapters on four expansion components: (1) training and supervisory skills of direct service personnel, (supervisors, clients, and productivity); (2) direct service personnel in supportive work training (job readiness, objective observation); (3) direct service personnel in job development (job assessments of local businesses, interviews with employers); (4) direct service personnel in supportive work placement (independent living training).
