Happiness as a Treatment Goal.
Szymanski, Ludwik S.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v105 n5 p352-62 Sep 2000
Discussion of happiness as a treatment goal with individuals who have mental retardation considers the importance of helping individuals develop subjective self-satisfaction through direct therapeutic interventions as well as environmental supports (e.g., provision of opportunities for success). Service providers are urged to differentiate between their own values, goals, and administrative requirements and the individual's personal preferences and wishes. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
