Workplace Literacy for Psychiatric Health Care Workers. Final Performance Report [and] External Evaluation Report.
Perin, Dolores; And Others
This report documents the Workplace Literacy for Psychiatric Health Care Workers project, a partnership between a labor union and the City University of New York through which workplace literacy instruction was provided to mental hygiene therapy aides (MHTAs) employed in five state-operated psychiatric hospitals in New York City. Among the project's major outcomes and accomplishments were the following: conduct of a literacy task analysis, development of a 48-unit (96-instructional hour) curriculum based on the use of tutors' individualized educational plans, and development of four assessment instruments. Appendixes constituting approximately two-thirds of this document contain the following: basic principles underlying the program's implementation, lists of instructional topics and learning objectives, information about the literacy task analysis' purposes/methods, and various project-related correspondence and forms. Also included is the external formative evaluation that found the project to be a model worker education program that addresses the educational needs of MHTAs both as a homogeneous student population having common characteristics and needs and as a student population characterized by diversity of educational and cultural backgrounds and learning styles and goals.
