Overview

This landmark volume features concept-based practical strategies for the organization of institutional settings. Unlike most other books that analyze only the given psychological or educational approach upon which the interventions of an institution are based, People Care in Institutions focuses on the very organization and culture of the institution as the critical intervention.

Yochanan Wozner, an internationally respected authority on the quality of residential settings, child behavior, and child therapy suggests a definitional scheme of quality of life and provides more than 100 intervention strategies according to the quality of life definition. By offering specific intervention strategies that are integrated with a conceptual view of the residential setting, this broad-based volume bridges the gap between the dry academic tomes that are so often difficult to read and apply and the “cookbook” approaches that always seem to minimize the complexity of real life and the readers’professional development.

People Care in Institutions will be of significant interest and assistance to direct care workers, allied clinical and teaching professionals, middle and top level supervisory and administrative personnel, policymakers, and academicians. The book is ideal for courses in residential care, providing a theoretical understanding as well as specific example of interventions in accordance with the theory. Practitioners may prefer to focus initially on the interventions for immediate concrete and practical help, building up to a broader understanding of the theory over time.
