Innovations in Providing Community Oriented Institutional Care of Emotionally Disturbed Children.
Russell, Kenneth R.; And Others
After five years of experience the Colorado State Hospital's Community Services Team has developed a dynamic treatment model utilizing college students as child care workers, and using community schools and resources in order to maintain an optimistic viewpoint for the patient and to avoid institutionalization. Treatment is offered to the patient's entire family. The program has been extended to one isolated six-county community, and other community programs are currently being planned. Suggestions are made for modifying this approach to other areas. (Author)
