In addition to providing a database, the
Employment Intervention Demonstration Program (EIDP) has generated
tools useful to other programs promoting employment.
- The EIDP Arizona site produced a series of four nationally
broadcast satellite teleconferences to describe effective EIDP strategies and
highlight key outcomes. Training modules of each broadcast are available as
videos, From Research to Practice: The Employment Intervention Demonstration
Program Satellite Teleconference Series. The videos can be ordered from
the Community Rehabilitation Division, University of Arizona, 721 North Fourth
Avenue, Suite 107, Tucson, AZ 85705-8445. Telephone: 1 (800) 724-2855.
- The EIDP Maine site has published a manual,
Business Partnerships, Employment Outcomes: The Mental
Health Employer Consortium, to help others form similar
arrangements. The manual describes a successful strategy
for helping mental health and vocational service providers
and communities of businesses form partnerships to provide
employers with information and networking opportunities.
To order, contact the Maine Medical Center, Department of
Vocational Services, 22 Bramhall Street, Portland, ME 04102.
Telephone: (207) 871-2091.
Detailed results of the study and a list of publications
are available at the EIDP Web site. Also available are a variety
of data-collection and information-assessment tools that can
be downloaded for free. These include protocols used to gather
information on employment trends as well as instructional
manuals for that task. Information can be compiled on individual
clients by case managers and then compiled to study results
of an entire program.
