 Notes
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate work values and assertiveness levels in employed and chronically unemployed adult epileptics. The Adult Self Expression Scale (ASES) , and the Work Values Inventory (WVI) were administered to two hundred adult epileptics in the North Florida area. This sample included one hundred employed and one hundred chronically unemployed adult epileptics. A t-test for independent groups was used to determine if significant differences exist in assertiveness levels and work values between the employed and chronically unemployed. The employed group scored significantly higher on the ASES than did the chronically unemployed group. The minimum value scored by the employed group was 5 9 and the maximum value was 163. A t-value equal to -7.8255 was obtained with the probability of obtaining that value at .0001. The minimum value on the WVI for the chronically unemployed group was 76 and the maximum value was 193. The range of scores for the employed was 122 to 257. A t-value equal to -10.8155 was obtained with a probability of obtaining that value at .0001. Employed epileptics scored significantly higher on the WVI than chronically unemployed epileptics. A Pearson product moment correlation was utilized to determine if a significant relationship between the Adult Self Expression Scale (ASES) and the Work Values Inventory (WVI) exists for the employed and for the chronically unemployed group. The Pearson product correlation yielded a correlation coefficient equal to .5554 with a probability of obtaining that coefficient of .0001. The correlation is moderately high and it is significant at the .0001 level. There is a significant relationship between assertiveness levels and work values as measured by the ASES and the WVI for employed epileptics. Based on the results of this study there is a need for assertion and work values training with chronically unemployed adult epileptics. Since a positive relationship exist between assertion and work values, providing one of those services may increase both levels and decrease duplication of services.
