Experiences among Unemployed of the Vocational Rehabilitation within the Labour Market Board. (English)
Work has a great influence on most of individuals in society. It influences both identity as well as the structure of the day. Unemployed people are often affected in a negative way through economic and psychological problems. In order to help people with reduced work capacity back to the labour market and decrease unemployment, the Labour Market Board works with vocational rehabilitation. The aim of this study is to investigate experiences of vocational rehabilitation within the Labour Market Board among unemployed people. A qualitative method was used by which interviews were made with 11 unemployed persons who participated in an investigation as a part of vocational rehabilitation within the Labour Market Board. The result shows both positive and negative experiences of the investigation period. The identified experiences were sorted into code groups: Support, Insight, Confidence in the investigation and result, Belief in the future, Motivation, and Participation. Both the actions of the personnel and the presence of the group members influenced the experiences. The support given by the personnel and how it is experienced is of great importance for the future of the unemployed. When the investigation was pursued during a short period of time, there was a lack of confidence in the investigation and result. A suggestions for future studies is to design a questionnaire that can be used in a larger study including a large number of individuals who are participating in vocational rehabilitation within the Labour Market Board.
