Coordinated specialty care (CSC) for first episode psychosis (FEP) typically includes supported employment/education (SEE), which builds on the evidence-based individual placement and support (IPS) intervention and database.  There have now been several randomized controlled trials and demonstration projects supporting the efficacy of SEE; however, a sizable minority of CSC participants are not engaged in employment, education, or training (NEET). The presentation will focus on ways to meet the needs of NEET CSC participants. Strategies for improving SEE outcomes, including more carefully attending to pre-morbid role functioning and variations in interest in work during CSC program participation, as well as careful assessment of personal views of the relative value of work and societal engagement in addition to a specific focus on addressing perceived barriers to work/school (which are often conceptualized as “motivational deficits”) will be offered.  Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions.
