“This program has greatly increased client-job readiness skills.” -Ada S. McKinley, Adult Services
Complete your program on good working habits with an interpersonal skills presentation.
This module includes 24 separate video lessons that teach the interpersonal skills that have been identified by experts in the field of vocational training as most important for job tenure. You’ll receive both an assessment (TICE) and a training section so you can focus on the specific areas and skills that your students need the most. Both sections concentrate on developing strategies for effective interactions with both supervisors and co-workers. This video program reflects over five years of research by the University of Oregon on techniques to promote success at work for persons with developmental and learning disabilities.
Part 1: Interactions with the Supervisor
Lessons in this section include following instructions, requesting assistance, handling serious work problems, handling criticism and correction, breaking work rules, difficulty understanding directions, disagreement with instructions, trouble getting help and doing the job wrong.
Part 2: Interactions with Co-Workers
Lessons in this section include cooperative work behavior, distractions from co-workers, disagreements over work tasks, conflicts with co-workers, handling teasing and provocation, verbal teasing, physical teasing, making requests and refusing requests.
TICE: Test of Interpersonal Competence for Employment
Good social interaction skills are very important for vocational success. That’s why a TICE assessment guide is included in the Working II program. TICE is a comprehensive test developed to help you identify and train individuals who lack interpersonal skills necessary for employment as well as to assess the results of this training. The accompanying teacher’s guide makes TICE effective and easy to use.
