Book Description

First published in 1986. The authors and their contributing associates have spent most, in some cases all, of their professional years working both with mentally handicapped individuals and with the men and women who serve them in residential facilities. This book, at its core, is about the future of these people.

Reviews

"It is the best, if not the first, 'how-to' book for people who would innovate in institutions for mentally retarded people. ... Organization and writing quality are uniformly good, chapter outlines are remarkably clear ... (the book) clearly conveys many good lessons and helpful 'how-to' suggestions for professionals in mental health, social work, and other human services."
