Conflicting Needs and Models in Respect to the Delivery of Mental Health Services for Children.
Gardner, George E.
The author discusses some of the conflicts now facing professionals, particularly those who work with children in the mental health field. He focuses on three conflict areas: the enormity of the task, the best method or theory involved in problem solving, the counselor's need to rehabilitate the patient vs. the need for social changes. The author concludes, however, that despite these conflicts, child mental health workers are moving into a progressive and more enlightened era. (HMV)
