Description

The Psychiatric Rehabilitation Training Technology for Rehabilitation Readiness teaches practitioners how to help people to actively assess and develop their own readiness to engage in rehabilitation. This Training Technology package has three components: Assessing Readiness, Developing Readiness, and Connecting. Each component can be taught independently or in a sequence designed by the individual trainer. In practice, the sequence for the performance of the activities is Assessing Readiness and then Developing Readiness. Connecting is performed throughout both Assessing and Developing Readiness.

Each training package includes a training module with easy-to­-follow lesson plans and a participant reference handbooks with lecture summaries, case studies, examples, practice exercises, and skill evaluation checklists. Assessing Readiness also includes a booklet of blank Assessing Readiness worksheets that can be reproduced for practice during training or for actual use. This training package also includes a text, Introduction to Rehabilitation Readiness, which has a brief overview of psychiatric rehabilitation. The research background and context for the concepts involved in both assessing and developing psychiatric rehabilitation readiness also are discussed.
