Doug Crandell Meaningful Writing: Capturing Strengths and Ideal Conditions of Employment

Presenter: Doug Crandell

Date: 8/24/2017, 2:00pm Eastern

There is an ever-expanding demand from the vocational rehabilitation system to communicate, through written reports, the strengths, capacities, abilities and preferences of the people we serve. Sounds simple. But the reality is, writing can be a bit of a challenge for most people. Even more so, how can we capture and document the focus person using a narrative approach? What if you were able to write a vocational profile that actually told the story about the person you are supporting, in a way that you and others could visualize that person working? This webcast provides basic ideas to improve writing skills, decrease stereotypes, and use words to create pictures, with the goal that the reader will gain a better understanding of the job seeker.
