Larry Robbin The Captain and Coach Approach to Case ManagementA Revolutionary New Empowering Approach to Case Management!


While new skills have been developed by people doing case management, the essential paradigm of case management hasn’t changed in decades. The very term case manager implies that the job seeker is some form of “case” that needs to be managed! How would you feel about being called a case and told that you needed to be managed? Some very good results come from traditional case management approaches, but if you reinvent the model a lot more can be accomplished. In traditional models case managers are teachers and job seekers are passive students supposedly absorbing what the teacher tells them and doing it. The problem is our job seekers don’t listen and don’t feel truly empowered by this process to make real change in their lives. After a session case managers often find themselves with longer to-do lists than their clients! Also, once clients leave your desk other people in their lives take over and these anti-work "case managers" often have more influence than you do and wipe out everything that was accomplished in the session.

What is TANF and How is it Effective?

More than ever, it is important that workforce development professionals understand all of the different types of government assistance that is available to customers so that resources can be maximized to the fullest extent.

On the Job Training is Back!

With the shift to Individual Training Accounts and during times of lower unemployment, employer-training subsidies became less needed, and some state and local workforce systems abandoned OJT. These workforce systems are now re-emphasizing and reinvigorating the OJT option to supplement classroom-training options. Systems are now positioning to respond to the rapidly emerging demand for “earn and learn” training strategies as a key component of job creation in a recession and as a route to recovery. (more...)

Preparing the Nation's Workforce for Health Information Technology, aka Electronic Medical Records

The $20 billion in health information technology (HIT) stimulus funding, provided through ARRA to incentivize physician adoption of electronic health records (EHR), will create unprecedented demand for EHR systems in hundreds of thousands of healthcare providers.

The Department of Health and Human Services and DOL has allocated over $750 million to ensure a qualified workforce will be prepared to transform 90% of all healthcare providers by 2014—a monumental change in the healthcare work process, impacting 16% of our total economy.
