This paper describes the psychosocial effects of a program of supported employment (SE) for persons with severe mental illness.
The SE program involves extended individualized supported employment for clients through a Mobile Job Support Worker (MJSW) who maintains contact with the client after job placement and supports the client in a variety of ways.
Instead of functioning better and having more self esteem, persons in SE had lower functioning levels and lower self esteem.
The most likely explanation is that people who work in low-paying service jobs in real world settings generally do not like them and experience significant job stress, whether they have severe mental illness or not.
Original models of vocational rehabilitation were based on the idea of sheltered workshop employment.
Clients were paid a piece rate and worked only with other individuals who were disabled.Note especially that there are three formatting rules you will see in this sample paper which you should NOT follow.First, except for the title page, the running header should appear in the upper right corner of every page with the page number below it.All participants were measured at intake and at 3 months after beginning employment, on two measures of psychological functioning (the BPRS and GAS) and two measures of self esteem (RSE and ESE).Significant treatment effects were found on all four measures, but they were in the opposite direction from what was hypothesized.Services such as individualized job development, one-on-one job coaching, advocacy with co-workers and employers, and "fading" support were found to be effective in maintaining employment for individuals with severe and profound mental retardation (Revell, Wehman & Arnold, 1984).The idea that this model could be generalized to persons with all types of severe disabilities, including severe mental illness, became commonly accepted (Chadsey-Rusch & Rusch, 1986).Contact us if you experience any difficulty logging in.This paper should be used only as an example of a research paper write-up.Second, paragraphs and text should be double spaced and the start of each paragraph should be indented.Third, horizontal lines are used to indicate a mandatory page break and should not be used in your paper.
