The Mental Health Counselor in the Community; Training of Physicians and Ministers.
Shapiro, David S.; And Others
This three year demonstration of a mental health program developed by the Bradley Center in Columbus, Georgia, centered on the training of physicians and ministers in standardized methods of managing emotional and social problems of patients and parishioners seeking help. Involved was the challenge of entering two Georgia Communities and obtaining the endorsement and active support of key professional groups; engaging a significantly high percentage of physicians and clergymen in the training program; and demonstrating, by sound evaluation techniques, that affirmative changes actually would occur in practice, perception, knowledge, and attitudes. The authors have also provided accounts of daily staff experiences in planning, decision making, and responding to successes and failures. (An index, forms and questionnaires, reports of research design, and 37 tables are included.) (LY)
