Material developed for a national conference of leaders in the applied and theoretical sectors of gerontology, mental health, and nursing home administration is provided in these proceedings.

Beattie, Jr.; The Concept of Wholeness in Long-Term Care Facilities; An Examination of Mental Health Principles by a Psychiatrist, an Administrator, and an Educator--Concerning Decent Institutional Care, by Robert N.
