Again more psycho-babble bounce  about people on the dole are there due to mental health problems. Rather than lack of actual opportunities geek . And it even says on page 45 that psycho-intervention hasn't have much benefit claimants:

"There is no evidence that work programme psycho-interventions increase the likelihood of gaining paid work that lasts any length of time. In perpetuating notions of psychological failure, they shift attention away from the social patterning of unemployment and from wider trends: market failure, precarity, the rise of in-work poverty, the cost of living crisis and the scale of income inequalities. They contribute centrally to the reification of paid work and the concomitant devaluing and discounting of all other activities, contributions, values and commitments. Above all, psychology is implicated in what amounts to a ‘substitution of outcomes’, where the modification of psychological attributes stands in for delivering actual improvements in household income or increasing the availability of real paid work."

I agree with the content of the article.

I believe the DWP are being disingenuous by trying to say that workless-ness is a psychological illness (it isn't). If people engaged with psychiatric treatment would that suddenly create more real jobs? Definitely not. What a disgraceful fallacy.
