IPS provides effective services for individuals determined to locate employment; however, it lacks components to intervene with individuals demonstrating ambivalence about finding and continuing work after they start IPS. To address employment ambivalence, a service package including IPS and MI (Motivational Interviewing) tools has been created. Six user-friendly tools incorporating IPS and MI have been created for rehabilitation counselors engaged in employment services for individuals with severe mental illness. Components of this course are based on: Larson, J.E. (2008). User-friendly motivational interviewing and evidence-based supported employment tools for practitioners. Journal of Rehabilitation, 74(4), 18-30.
