This study investigated the problem of lack of a standardized curriculum in chemical dependency curricula to train the Certified Addiction Professional Counselor.
The Columbia Assessment Services(CAS) was employed by the National Certification Reciprocity Consortium (NCRC) to complete a study for the field of addiction counseling. The study completed was a role delineation analysis and has since been translated into a book called the Study Guide for Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Counselors (1992). This study guide was used to develop a course module using the Systems Approach to Training (SAT) format.
This study addresses the basic research question, is an instructional training module using the Systems Approach to Training (SAT) method a consistent and standard delivery system for instruction? To answer the basic research question, three related or subsidiary questions must be answered.
1. As the content of the course module on assessment is already designed in a traditional approach, can the course also be designed using an SAT method?
2. Will the SAT format be a consistent and standard method of delivery of the knowledge to be learned as determined by a panel of experts?
3. Will the SAT format be a consistent and standard method of delivery for the skills to be performed, as determined by a panel of experts?
This study ascertains through subject matter experts surveyed in the field, that the course module designed in the SAT format is a consistent and standard method of delivery for the training program utilizing a chemical dependency course module.
