Workforce development in the US: a third approach
The Journal of Mental Health Training, Education and Practice
Article publication date: 1 May 2006
The author identifies the two key issues in mental health workforce development in the United States at the moment as recovery and evidence‐based practice, viewed in the context of a workforce with a high quotient of unqualified personnel. Two common responses to this problem, training and the hiring of more experienced staff are assessed as either ineffective (the former) or not realistic (the latter). The author recommends and produces supportive evidence for the benefits of a more extensive use of workplace mentoring and group supervision approaches.
