Overview of Interactive Staff Training
Currently, a classroom-based model dominates staff training of psychiatric rehabilitation, with the individual staff member as the focus of training and teaching state-of-the-art interventions as the goal. However, given the various limitations of educational approaches on personnel and program development, the model that governs staff training efforts needs to be broadened. Two paradigm shifts are needed to assure that rehabilitation innovations are adopted and regularly implemented by the treatment team. The two different paradigms are summarized in Figure 3.1. These paradigms form the basis of an alternative to traditional staff training: interactive staff training (IST).
