How to improve your return to employment? Being disabled, what is your input in this rehabilitation process and are you capable to enhance your input? These and other related topics were the issues in the VrijBaan project.
In the project we developed the 'VrijBaan Empowerment Method'.
This is a new approch on ‘empowering' people with labour disablities. Through measurement of individual empowerment level the need for personality training is assessed. Consequently a special training programme is meant to empower participants to become more active and to improve their self steering capacity in finding sustainable jobs.
