MHDD Webinar Series – Effective Supports to Lead to Success on the Job: Toward Recovery and Empowerment
Date: Tuesday, June 29, 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Presenters: Katie Wolf Whaley, MSW, and Paul Wehman, PhD
Learning Objectives: Competitive employment has proven to be a powerful means of helping individuals feel more productive, have higher self-esteem, increase community inclusion and generally improve overall health. In this webinar, we will discuss how many unemployed individuals with developmental disabilities such as autism and traumatic brain injury can benefit from a job in the workforce. Strategies such as supported employment, employment networking, and mentoring will be presented through instructional videos and case studies to demonstrate the process of empowerment and the feelings of independence that work brings. There is strong evidence-based research to support empowerment through work.
