Considers the background to various welfare‐to‐work interventions and introduces the conceptual framework of an integrative person‐centred approach, which has been piloted in the CASEPT (Computer Aided Selection & Evaluation Psychometric Test) programme and achieved significantly positive results. The CASEPT programme provides a radical and innovative way of working with long‐term unemployed young people that utilises an integrative person‐centred approach. It recognises that the long‐term unemployed may be traumatised by life’s negative experiences and that an integrative person‐centred approach is the most viable way to move them from helplessness to empowerment.
