The Multi-Troubled Jobseeker: The Case of the Jobless Worker with a Convulsive Disorder. A Summary Evaluation.
Frank, Donald S.; Johnakin, Charles R.
This demonstration project represents a pioneer effort in dealing with the joblessness situation of workers with convulsive disorders. Providing 1,200 jobseekers with vocational counseling, individual job development, training, and placement, the program showed that under good economic conditions a systematic approach can avoid needless fragmentation of the deprived and disabled individual's job problem. It also proved that the jobseeker with epilepsy usually can be benefited by the aggressive, yet empathetic redirection provided by this project. In spite of various social, economic, and psychological problems in addition to epilepsy, 70 percent of the jobseekers were placed in employment or job training. (BH)
