Choosing Employment Interventions: A Guide for the Discriminating Palate.
Bezanson, Lynne; O'Reilly, Elaine
This workbook is designed for community partners working collaboratively to organize and deliver comprehensive employment services and draw on the best and most effective interventions that are available to help clients learn to manage their work life and work futures successfully. It focuses on building abundance by choosing and helping others choose interventions that build excellent employment services. This workbook can be used in a variety of ways, such as a first step tool in organizing a continuum of employment services; a planning process for employment service partners to identify and contribute best practices; a professional development tool for one or more partners to use proactively to plan training and future services; or in creative applications yet to be discovered which allow community partners to work better together on behalf of clients. It is organized into two parts. Part 1, "Matching Client Needs with Appropriate Interventions," discusses the organizing framework of employment service delivering; researching client needs; scanning employment services; evaluating interventions; matching for agency capacity; and dimensions of the framework in action--quality, clarity, diversity, and excellence. Part 1 provides 26 worksheets to be utilized with the interventions. Part 2, "Inventory of ToolKit Resources/Interventions," examines the context of the interventions; delivery to clients; working collaboratively; and building service quality. It includes four sample worksheets. (MKA)
