Abstract

An evaluation of the impact of training in the task-centered approach on the practice of public agency social workers is reported. Trained workers scored significantly higher at post-test than control workers on an analogue test of task-centered problem solving and their clients reported more use of the approach in their counseling than did clients of control workers. Implications for further training and evaluations are discussed.
