A Guide to Well-Developed Services for Dislocated Workers.
Dickinson, Katherine; And Others
This guide provides Economic Dislocation and Worker Adjustment Assistance Act practitioners with information about effective strategies to serve dislocated workers under a variety of local conditions. Chapter 1 describes responsive services and explains the study methods by which examples were selected for this guide and the data collection methods. The remaining nine chapters are organized by type of service. For each service, the guide first identifies the challenges substate areas face in responding to the needs of dislocated workers and then presents examples of strategies substate areas have used to address these challenges. Each chapter presents more detailed case examples of substate areas with responsive services. Some chapters also list examples of resources or materials referenced in the examples. Services described in chapters 2-9 include the following: early intervention services; services to help dislocated workers develop appropriate reemployment plans; services to support dislocated workers during program participation; basic readjustment services, including job search training and assistance and crisis adjustment, job readiness, and relocation assistance; and retraining services, including basic skills, classroom training in occupational skills, and on-the-job training. Chapter 10 highlights ways substate areas promote high-quality services through organizational and staff development procedures. (YLB)
