Adaptive Training's Affect on Self-Perception.
Tate, Derek W.
Challenge initiatives are used by many mental health agencies to facilitate a variety of therapeutic changes within participants. There are several ways to lead these challenge initiatives, including whole training, fixed training, and adaptive training. This paper presents a theoretical basis for considering adaptive training to be the most effective facilitation technique in a mental health setting for increasing adolescents' self-efficacy and self-affirmation. In contrast to whole training, which focuses on practicing tasks in their total completed form, and fixed training, which has an inflexible progression for the trainee to follow, adaptive training varies the task or problem as a function of how well the trainee performs. Using supportive citations from the literature, the interrelationships of performance, self-efficacy, and self-affirmation to adaptive training are explained. Using adaptive training in challenge initiatives allows the therapist to correlate intervention structure with a client's readiness for treatment. Contains 37 references. (Author/SAS)
