Using the Dictionary of Occupational Titles in Career Decision Making: A Self-Study Manual.
Robinson, Charles W.
This self-study manual was designed to help people who work in rehabilitation, education, and other helping professions to use the Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT) to assist persons with disabilities in preparing for and locating appropriate employment. The manual has four main sections: (1) a preface and introduction that explain how it will help counselors and teachers in their job, how it is organized, and what materials are needed; (2) an explanation of how occupational information is related to and important in vocational rehabilitation and career and special education--including the theory of work adjustment, the process of comparing people to jobs, and a complete description of the contents of the DOT with exercises that apply occupational information to case practice; (3) a section that discusses the eight worker trait areas and their application to career decision-making; and (4) appendixes that contain definitions, answers to exercises, background information, models, and sample data from the DOT. Units within each section consist of unit objectives, an introduction, information sections, and exercises. (KC)
