Transfer of staff training from workshops to group homes : a failure to generalize across settings.
Two experiments were conducted to assess acquisition and generalization of skills acquired in a workshop by trainees who were primary caregivers on the staffs of group homes for developmentally disabled clients.
In Study 1, 31 staff trainees received an intensive, 1-week workshop in behavioral theory and treatment techniques.
When assessed at the workshop site, these staff trainees showed increased treatment skills, relative to 18 staff trainees who did not participate in the workshop.
In study 2, preand postworkshop observations were taken on 53 developmentally disabled clients in group homes where the staff trainees worked.
