OVERVIEW

We are presenting at the "4th Annual Wellness Management and Recovery Conference: Building Communities of Wellness," which takes place Monday, May 21 to Wednesday, May 23 in Dayton, Ohio. Sign up for our workshops.

1.)  Consumer-Operated Services: Partners in Employment

  • Date: Tuesday, May 22, 2012
  • Time: 3:45 to 5:15 pm
Presenter:  Marilyn Kohn, MSEd, PC, is a peer consultant at the Center for Evidence-Based Practices (CEBP) at Case Western Reserve University and its Ohio Supported Employment Coordinating Center of Excellence (CCOE) initiative (for bio, see "keynote speaker" section below).

Abstract:  This workshop will highlight the accomplishments and activities of members of consumer-operated services that are participating in the SE CCOE Peer Employment Partnership, which helps people prepare to (and get to) work. Kohn will discuss program activities, outcomes, and stakeholder collaborations that have helped people consider work as part of their personal recovery.

Learning Objectives:  Participants will be able to ...

  • Identify and list activities that have helped foster consideration of and obtaining competitive work
  • Describe project outcomes data demonstrating success of the initiative

 


2.)  Employment Basics

  • Date: Wednesday, May 23, 2012
  • Time: 9 to 10:30 am
Presenter:  Steve Shober, BS, LSW, consultant and trainer at the Center for Evidence-Based Practices (CEBP) at Case Western Reserve University and its Ohio Supported Employment Coordinating Center of Excellence (CCOE) initiative (for bio, see "keynote speaker" section below).

Abstract:  "Employment Basics" will provide an overview of principles and strategies to help the audience consider their role in helping to increase the number of people moving into or sustaining competitive employment. Though many more people who have serious mental health conditions are moving into the world of work, many people in vulnerable populations still do not consider attempting competitive work as part of their recovery process. Tips, skills, and activities that support the consideration of work will be covered in this informative workshop, including some information about providing support to individuals who receive benefits and are considering employment..

Learning Objectives:  Participants will be able to ...

  • Identify the foundational principles that support competitive work opportunities
  • Apply tips and activities that foster the consideration of work
