Have you ever felt stuck in helping consumers decide if work is for them?
Are you looking for ideas about how to speak to consumers about their fears of losing benefits if they find employment?
Can you benefit from having resources at your fingertips to help consumers prepare for job interviews?
Would consumers that you work with find it useful to have a tool that helps to guide their thinking and actions related to choosing, getting, and keeping a job?
If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, then CPI's new Employment Resource Book is for you!
Informed by the principles of the Individual Placement and Support (IPS) approach to supported employment, the Employment Resource Book is designed for consumers to use with employment specialists, other practitioners, peer specialists, and on their own.
This important resource contains over 30 topics and 10 appendices that focus on three themes: prior to the job search, during the job search, and after getting a job. This isn't a curriculum that individuals would need to complete it any specific way - rather, people focus on topics as they become relevant to their lives. Each topic is organized to provide important information, personalized activities, and next steps.
You can obtain the Employment Resource Book through the CPI website (http://practiceinnovations.org/) by clicking on the "Purchase CPI Products" tab on our home page.

Once your account has been established, you will be able to download an electronic version for free or purchase bound paper copies.
