The aim of this manual is to share the objectives, structure and details of the skills profile model for asylum seekers and political refugees called “ESPaR”. The first two chapters are dedicated to the need for training and professional orientation of migrants and to the points of attention taken into account when making career counselling with this specific target. It is a really important part of the manual that allows to grasp the meaning of the ESPaR model: who got the opportunity to get in touch with it, has considered it innovative not so much because it proposes interventions that have never been experienced before, as because it intends to act on the dynamics of knowledge and personal improvement often eluded by interventions to support job placement not only concerning migrants. The third chapter suggests a focus on the multicultural counselling, pointing out that it cannot be based only on a general reception attitude, but it needs specific skills. Two methodological chapters follow; the first is dedicated to the autobiographical narration, which is the basis of the whole path. During this chapter, the narration moves from a less structured modality, aimed at a first awareness of their own characteristics to the grieving process for the loss of their own professionalism and to the development of the right attitude towards the new career planning, in a more structured way which results in a greater conviction of their skills and motivations and a better ability to present themselves on the labour market. The second chapter is instead dedicated to group orientation, in order to guarantee the individual meetings, mainly conducted in this form, to be as efficient as possible. Once the theoretical intro is over, the model is introduced by dedicating a specific paragraph to each intervention. In it, you can view the images of the information sheets for some of the planned activities, while internet is used as a reference to access the material to be printed during the conduct of the groups. The last chapter is dedicated to experimentation, which was conducted in the summer of 2017, the evaluation of which allowed optimizing the intervention making it more efficient and effective.
