PRESENTATION:  Work provides benefits to all of us, beyond the obvious benefits of a paycheck. It gives structure to our says, can boost self-esteem and provide income that affords us more choices. It also offers opportunities to be a part of, and give back to, our community. Employment is a vital part of supporting individuals to gain greater independence, experience more social inclusion, resiliency and recovery, live more self-determined lives and build social capital. How can community support and residential providers best assist the individuals they work with on their path to employment?

Learn how to incorporate employment into the work you do with the individuals you serve. This training will draw from tools such as Motivational Interviewing and Stages of Change and evidence-base supported employment and give you tools to develop or enhance a culture of employment in the services you provide to people.  As a result of attending this training participants will be able to:

  • Identify the components and best practices of a culture of work
  • Describe current organizational and staff facilitators for developing a culture of work
  • Describe organizational and staff barriers to developing a culture of work
  • Identify next steps to developing or enhancing a culture of work.

PRESENTER: Steve Shober, BS, LSW, WIP, is a consultant and trainer at the Center for Evidence-Based Practices at Case Western Reserve University and its Supported Employment Center of Excellence initiative. He provides technical assistance (program consultation, clinical consultation, training, and fidelity evaluation) to service systems and organizations that are implementing evidence-based practices, emerging best practices, and other strategies that improve quality of life and other outcomes for people diagnosed with severe mental illness and substance use disorders. Mr. Shober brings many years of direct-practice and supervision experience to his role at the Center. Before joining the Center, he worked at Eastway Behavioral Healthcare in Dayton, Ohio, as a vocational rehabilitation specialist and job coach then as a team leader and manager who guided the implementation of evidence-based Supported Employment services. At Eastway, he witnessed the positive impacts of the core principles and practices of the SE/IPS model as his team helped people diagnosed with severe mental illness find a job of their choice in local communities.
