Enhancing Workplace Inclusion for Employees with Psychiatric Disabilities
Rick Forbess, Marianne Farkas, Zlatka Russinova, and Philippe Bloch
|Preview Book||Audience: Recommended for educators, students, practitioners, supervisors, trainers, and consumers—anyone interested in understanding and serving the needs of persons with psychiatric disabilities. Valuable resource for
staff development and for classroom use in courses in rehabilitation counseling, psychology, psychiatry, psychiatric nursing, and social work.
The key components of the Enhancing Workplace Inclusion for Employees with Psychiatric Disabilities guide include: a description of six guiding principles for the provision of technical assistance; a narrative overview of the seven major steps of the technical assistance process; and discrete sections for each step including the intended outcomes for the step, guidelines for conducting the step; and a case study example of the step. The benefit of using the guide is increased understanding about how to effectively involve employers in the development, implementation, and improvement of strategies designed to eliminate prejudicial and discriminatory behaviors toward people with psychiatric disabilities in the workplace.
