Abstract

Videoplayback was evaluated as an approach to helping develop work behavior with 150 Hard-Core unemployed Ss enrolled in a work adjustment program at a large rehabilitation facility. Experimental Ss received 15 minutes daily videoplayback of their work behavior, with control receiving comparable periods of counseling. Variables measured included production, time working, socializing, and distractability. After 15 work days, the experimental (video) group showed significant improvement on all variables except distractability, while controls' improvement was not significant on any variable. Informal short term followup on job placement showed a better job retention rate for experimental Ss.
