Abstract:

This report presents the results of a detailed Air Force occupational survey of the Mental Health Clinic Career specialty AFSC 914X0. As personnel progress through the Mental Health Clinic career ladder, they perform an increasing number of supervisory tasks, but still perform many therapy, testing, and administrative tasks. The Specialty Description for the career ladder generally gave a complete and accurate description of the job performed by the Mental Health Clinic specialist however, it may not reflect the number of tasks and relative time many personnel spend performing tasks in the basic administrative area. And examination of the 914XO STS and POI Plan of Instruction matched with survey data showed that first-job airmen were being adequately trained for their employment in the field. The occupational survey data identified some jobs indicating problems in the job satisfaction. They also showed a correlation between performing tasks in counseling and therapy and job satisfaction. The data indicate the training provided by the Army at Fort Sam Houston and documents such as STS, POIs, and AFR 39-1 meet the needs of the 914XO career ladder.
