Clinical Internship Training Program in Psychiatric Vocational Rehabilitation.
Geckle, Michelle O.; Katz, Lynda J.
This manual has been designed for university-based training programs in rehabilitation counseling, psychiatric rehabilitation field sites, and other potential training sites and community programs, that may wish to implement a clinical training program in psychiatric/vocational rehabilitation. The manual is formatted to follow the trainee/student from entry into a field site training program until the completion of that program, typically of six months duration. The manual covers the following topical areas: general field site orientation procedures, documentation of the internship experience itself, record keeping and medical record issues, the processes of assessment and counseling, implementing education/training or employment options with clients, post-employment and follow-along services, and matters pertaining to case closure and student/trainee issues. Each of the topical areas have accompanying instructional materials. There are also complete manuals in psychometric assessment, report writing, treatment planning, and job club implementation. An instructional videotape is included that portrays the implementation of the job club model with persons who have a psychiatric disability (50 minutes) and the realities of financial disincentives to employment (25 minutes). In addition, there is a complete seminar series which includes lectures, reading materials, and case study exercises. (CR)
