Brantschen, Elisabeth; Kawohl, Wolfram; Rössler, Wulf; Bärtsch, Bettina; Nordt, Carlos (2014). Supported employment – improving competitive employment for people with mental illness: The role of motivation and social network. Journal of Vocational Rehabilitation, 40(1):41-47.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: Self-motivation, subjective norms, and support of social network are central factors in supported employment.
OBJECTIVE: To measure these factors a short questionnaire was developed and tested.
METHODS: 116 people with mental illness were enrolled.
RESULTS: In the present study we found that self-motivation was high; 98% of the consumers think competitive employment is important or very important. The perceived motivation of the social network was also high, but significantly lower than self-motivation. Furthermore, the consumers assume that their social network supports their desire to work.
CONCLUSION: People with mental illness are motivated to work, they are not idle.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
