An update on randomized controlled trials of evidence-based supported employment.
TLDR
The number, consistency, and effect sizes of studies of evidence-based supported employment establish it as one of the most robust interventions available for persons with severe mental illness.
Implementing supported employment as an evidence-based practice.
TLDR
The authors discuss barriers to implementation and strategies for overcoming them based on successful experiences in several states, and the effectiveness of supported employment appears to be generalizable across a broad range of client characteristics and community settings.
Models of community care for severe mental illness: a review of research on case management.
TLDR
The findings in terms of the need for specialization of ACT or ICM teams to address social and vocational functioning and substance abuse are discussed, including evaluating implementation fidelity, exploring patient predictors of improvement, and evaluating the role of the helping alliance in mediating outcome.
Implementing evidence-based practices in routine mental health service settings.
TLDR
The authors discuss common concerns about the use of evidence-based practices, such as whether ethical values have a role in shaping such practices and how to deal with clinical situations for which no scientific evidence exists.
Dual diagnosis: a review of etiological theories.
Implementing dual diagnosis services for clients with severe mental illness.
TLDR
The authors describe the critical components of effective programs, which include a comprehensive, long-term, staged approach to recovery; assertive outreach; motivational interventions; provision of help to clients in acquiring skills and supports to manage both illnesses and to pursue functional goals; and cultural sensitivity and competence.
A randomized clinical trial of supported employment for inner-city patients with severe mental disorders.
TLDR
The IPS model of supported employment is more effective than standard, stepwise EVR approaches for achieving competitive employment, even for inner-city patients with poor work histories and multiple problems.
