Introducing Jodie Goldney from the PUT Institute/Aftercare

Jodie Goldney is the Manager of the Professional Practice Academy which is a world-class, workforce solution specifically built for the community services sector as it moves into the new world of the NDIS.

Jodie is also a qualitative researcher, and authored the first of a series of attributional tools (patent pending), published through the PPA and which seek to powerfully match incumbents with the mental health support worker role.  The tool also channels them into targeted, industry approved education and training.

In addition, Jodie works as a sessional academic at Charles Sturt University.  Here she has recently submitted the soft copy of her PhD, a qualitative exploration into the experience of Psychological practitioners required to work within an ‘evidence-based’ frame.  She has a strong interest in the privileging of practice generated knowledge.

Jodie joins us at the 3rd Annual Australian Long-Term Unemployment Conference this week and will present on the topic of ‘The lived experience of mental illness: A pathway into employment’.

The lived experience of mental illness has been identified as a substantive risk factor for unemployment.  Yet, the experience of mental illness has more recently been identified as core currency for both successful employment within the mental health sector, and the facilitation of recovery-orientated outcomes.  Drawing on such findings, Aftercare, in collaboration with international certifiers, Exemplar Global, and the Put Institute, have built the first of an internationally unique series of attributional tools, targeting the mental health support worker role, and aimed at helping an “at risk” population into meaningful employment.

The 3rd Annual Australian Long-Term Unemployment Conference will be held this week on the 1 – 2 December 2016 at the Mercure Brisbane. This year’s theme is Finding Solutions and focuses on business working together with employment facilitators and agencies to create positive outcomes for Australia’s long-term unemployed.
