The Role of Informal Leaders Among Clients in a Comprehensive Rehabilitation Center
Spreitzer, Elmer A.
Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, 19, 3, 504-507, Mar 76

The findings showed that the informal leaders among the clients had a positive influence that facilitated the rehabilitation process. Informal leaders, in some respects, functioned as "lay therapists" among their peers in reinforcing the therapeutic process. (Author)
