Psychiatric Rehabilitation Training Technology: Direct Skills Teaching
Mikal Cohen, Karen Danley, and Patricia Nemec
|Preview TM||Audience: Recommended for use by instructors and trainers as part of an academic course, staff training, workshop, or seminar in the skills of the psychiatric rehabilitation process.|
Direct skills teaching is different from behavior modification, conditioning, or training that shapes behavior without a person’s full control. Direct skills teaching involves individuals in comprehensive instructional activities, enabling them to perform skills when they choose to do so. This technology teaches practitioners how to help consumers acquire and use the skills needed to be successful and satisfied in residential, educational, vocational, and social environments. Practitioners learn how to outline skill content, plan the lesson, program skill use, and encourage the individuals’ participation throughout the teaching process.
