Assisting Unemployed Adults Find Suitable Work: A Group Intervention Embedded in Community and Grounded in Social Action
Bhat, Christine Suniti
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v35 n3 p246-254 Sep 2010
Addressing unemployment, which is currently at the highest levels in recent times, is a social justice imperative. A 3-week (15-day) group intervention for long-term unemployed adults grounded in empowerment and advocacy is presented. The group incorporates the Job Club model with personal awareness and career self-efficacy. In addition to working with clients to help them find jobs, an employer liason advocates for the group members with employers in the community and provides case management, making this type of group different from traditional career counseling groups. Sufficient details to replicate the group are provided along with resources and follow-up suggestions.
