The Clubhouse Model of Community Support for Adults with Mental Illness: An Emerging Opportunity for Social Work Education.
Jackson, Robert L.; And Others
Journal of Social Work Education, v32 n2 p173-80 Spr-Sum 1996
As an approach to serving adults with mental illness, the Clubhouse Model, developed during the 1950s and 1960s, is particularly suitable for social workers. Clubhouse communities provide support for a full range of daily needs and a participatory environment designed to promote recovery from social isolation and deprivation. Social workers' training matches the staffing needs of the clubhouse model. (MSE)
