Skills Training Modules
Purpose and Design
Teaching consumers the skills they need to achieve their goals is the CORE treatment of Psychiatric Rehabilitation. Consumers can direct their own lives when they know what to do, when to do it, and have practiced it to precision. But, identifying the specific skills that must be taught, and developing methods of teaching them, is no easy task. What specific skills should be taught? How should they be taught? How can the teaching be equally effective regardless of the teacher's experience and education? Who has the time to spend doing all of this development work?
PRC has taken the time to do this development work, and we've produced 9 skills training modules that will help clients learn the skills to achieve their goals to function more effectively in the community. Importantly, ALL of the modules use the same techniques to teach the skills, so that ALL clinicians can easily and accurately conduct a module, and smoothly transfer their skills as trainers from one module to another. Below are brief descriptions of the modules' teaching techniques, content, costs, components, and how to conduct them.
Each module teaches from 4 to 9 skills in a major domain of community living, and each skill in each module is taught with seven highly structured and thoroughly specified "learning activities."
The skill areas taught in each module are listed below. Click on the name of each module for details.
Costs and Components
Each module is distributed with a professionally produced Trainer's Manual, Participant's Workbook, and Demonstration DVD.
Each module costs $400.00 (plus shipping, handling, and sales tax, CA only) and includes 1 Trainer's Manual, 1 DVD, 10 Participant's Workbooks, and 1 Poster Packet (Workplace Fundamentals, Basic Conversation modules only). Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
A module is usually conducted in a group format with 4 to 6 participants. To begin a module group, you will need the proper space, equipment, participants, and staff.
Demonstration Modules: The
best way to learn and master a new treatment and rehabilitation
innovation is to watch "master clinicians" conduct the innovation in
action with real patients.
