Institutional Values of Managed Mental Health Care: Efficiency or Oppression?
Wilcoxon, S. Allen; Magnuson, Sandy; Norem, Ken
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v36 n3 p143 Jul 2008
The authors suggest that many managed mental health care (MMHC) practices have oppressive effects on members of cultural and ethnic minority groups. They examine the dissonance between institutional practices and cultural traditions that reflect insensitivity and forced conformity, particularly regarding time, pace, and intervention uniformity as applied to clients and commonly required in the MMHC industry.
