COORDINATING HOSPITAL AND COMMUNITY WORK ADJUSTMENT SERVICES. FINAL REPORT.
GOERTZEL, VICTOR; AND OTHERS
THE GOALS OF THIS STUDY WERE TO USE WORK TO HELP PATIENTS LEAVE THE CAMARILLO STATE HOSPITAL SOONER, BECOME A PART OF THE COMMUNITY, AND BECOME SELF-SUPPORTING. THE PROJECT SELECTED 146 SCHIZOPHRENIC MALES WHO HAD A HISTORY OF POOR WORK ADJUSTMENT. AS PART OF THE TREATMENT, THE MEN WERE PLACED IN THE HOSPITAL BAKERY. AFTER ADJUSTMENT TO THE WORK SITUATION IN THE BAKERY AND AFTER GROUP AND INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING, THE MEN WERE RELEASED TO THE COMMUNITY. THEY WERE EMPLOYED BY THE HANDCRAFT INDUSTRIES OF THE JEWISH VOCATIONAL SERVICE AS THE SECOND PHASE OF THE PROJECT TO INCREASE THEIR LEVEL OF FUNCTIONING IN AND ADJUSTMENT TO A WORK SITUATION. DETAILS OF THE PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED WITHIN THE HOSPITAL BAKERY AND OTHER DEPARTMENTS, AND OF ARRANGING COMMUNITY LIVING FACILITIES ARE GIVEN. OF THE MEN INVOLVED IN THE PROJECT, 89 LEFT THE HOSPITAL, 63 STAYED OUT FOR 6 MONTHS, AND 31 BECAME SELF-SUPPORTING. THE PROJECT IS OFFERED AS A MODEL FOR VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION THROUGH AGENCY COOPERATION AND HOSPITAL PROGRAMS. (NS)
