Training and Support
Implementation materials explain the theoretical foundation and principles of this intervention, with special attention to the process involved in providing vocational rehabilitation services. Clinical support consultants who provide technical assistance are accessible through the program developer. Outcome and fidelity measures are provided to support quality assurance.
Materials focus on the theory supporting the intervention and omit specific implementation details that would be beneficial to clinicians and organizations using this intervention. The training manual lacks clear direction for implementers and actual instructional tasks to guide training, making it seem more like a program overview than a manual. No guidance is provided for the administration and use of quality assurance tools.
