WALKER, ROBERT A.
THIS REPORT DOCUMENTS THE RESULTS OF A REHABILITATION PROGRAM FOR 170 PERSONS, SELECTED BY THE STATE EMPLOYMENT SERVICE, WHO SUFFERED FROM SEVERE AND CHRONIC UNEMPLOYMENT (HARD-CORE UNEMPLOYED). THE DEMOGRAPHIC VARIABLES, PSYCHOLOGICAL AND SOCIAL CHARACTERISTICS, EMPLOYMENT HISTORY, ETC., WHICH WERE GATHERED THROUGH TESTING AND INTERVIEWS INDICATED THAT CHRONIC UNEMPLOYMENT IS A SYMPTOM OF DEEPER PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEMS. A SPECIAL GROUP ANALYSIS DESCRIBES THE CHARACTERISTICS OF GROUPS OF TRAINEES WHO WERE CATEGORIZED ON THE BASIS OF CERTAIN OUTCOMES ("NO SHOWS," DROPOUTS, UNEMPLOYABLES, ETC.) AND GIVES AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE NATURE OF THESE GROUPS AS AN AID IN THE SELECTION OF POTENTIAL TRAINEES. THE SERVICES OFFERED BY THE CENTER AND THE OBJECTIVES OF THE PROGRAM ARE OUTLINED. TO MEASURE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE PROGRAM, THE CENTER STUDIED THE EMPLOYMENT RATES, THE LEVEL OF JOBS ATTAINED, AND THE COSTS OF THE PROGRAM. (PS)
