"Community Care" as Persuasive Rhetoric: A Study of Discourse.
Potter, Jonathan; Collie, Fiona
Disability, Handicap and Society, v4 n1 p57-64 1989
The study compared attitudes of 50 subjects on mental health policy when presented with vignettes expressed in "community care" terms or matched alternatives. The "community care" linguistic construction resulted in more favorable policy ratings and estimates of integration of the handicapped. Findings suggest linguistic framing may be important in public acceptance of policy. (Author/DB)
