Practice Makes Perfect and Other Myths about Mental Health Services.
Bickman, Leonard
American Psychologist, v54 n11 p965-78 Nov 1999
Examines forces motivating reform in mental health services, suggesting that mental health practitioners and researchers have relied on traditional and apparently unsuccessful methods (with little or no scientific support) to ensure service quality and effectiveness; debunking six myths about mental health services; and suggesting that insufficient communication and collaboration between research and service communities has harmed both communities.
