Participants Needed for Research on a New Employment Initiative

Source By: EMPOWER, Mind in the City, Hackney & Waltham Forest

There are some people who find it harder than others to get a job and also hold down a job; this can be for many reasons. Some people find relationships difficult and that can make it hard to get along with work colleagues and supervisors, while still getting what they want. Some people experience strong emotions that ‘come from nowhere’ and take a long time to go down or leave you feeling overwhelmed. These problems can sometimes lead to difficulties building confidence at work and managing work pressures.

We have designed a new employment initiative (Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Skills for Employment; DBT-SE) to help support people who experience these kinds of problems and are conducting a research study* to see if the initiative helps people to keep regular employment.

If you think this study sounds like something that might be useful for you or you would just like some more information about what taking part involves, please contact the EMPOWER research team using the following information:

You can email us at EMPOWER@mindchwf.org.uk

Or telephone us on 0208 525 2337

*Please note that this study is a randomised controlled trial (RCT) therefore participants are randomly allocated to either the Dialectical Behaviour Therapy-Skills for Employment initiative group or a local mental health employment service in your area.
