The Difficulty in Measuring Staff Training Effects
Various educational and organizational paradigms have been produced that facilitate development of psychiatric rehabilitation programs in real-world settings; some of these paradigms were reviewed earlier in the volume. Unfortunately, both the quantity and quality of research testing of the paradigms has been lacking. The purpose of this chapter is to review the state of research in staff development vis-à-vis psychiatric rehabilitation and, more importantly, to provide guidelines for future research in this arena. Research strategies for investigating various staff and organizational development approaches are discussed. First, however, research on staff and organizational development needs to be put into perspective by placing it on a continuum of intervention research.
