||Effect of cognitive-behavioural training on job-finding among long-term unemployed people
||12 July 1997, Vol.350, No.9071, p.96-100. 32 ref.
||Two groups of long-term (>12 months) unemployed professional people were assigned to one of two occupational training programmes: one based on cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), and a control programme based on social support. Questionnaires completed before and after training assessed mental health, job-seeking activities and success in job-finding. Improvements in several measures of mental health were greater in the CBT group than in the control group. Compared with the control group, almost three times as many CBT participants successfully found full-time employment. Results suggest that group CBT training can improve mental health and produce tangible benefits in job-finding among the long-term unemployed.
