Vocational Coping Training. Leader's Manual, Long Form.
Roessler, Richard T.; Johnson, Virginia A.
This Leader's Manual is part of a training program to teach individuals with physical, intellectual, or emotional disabilities the skills required to cope with common on-the-job situations encountered with one's supervisor and co-workers. The 40-hour training incorporates videotaping, self-observation through video feedback, group processing, and cognitive and behavioral interventions. The program is based on social skill model derived from information processing components of input, processing, and output. The program's seven modules cover: (1) orientation to the work role: task performance, supervision, teamwork, and socializing; (2) sources of vocational information: place, people, and self; (3) interpreting social cues in vocational situations: face, voice, and body; (4) self-messages: performance enhancers and performance inhibitors; (5) option and anticipation thinking; (6) responding in common vocational situations; and (7) the typical work day: practicing vocational coping. Presented for each module are trainer objectives, comments to the trainer, activities, suggested materials, and specific instructions. The entire program consists of print, video, slide, and audio materials. Includes 19 references. (DB)
