Work and mental disorder : a study of factors involved in the rehabilitation of the vocationally disadvantaged former mental patient by Walter S Neff( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sample of 236 former mental patients was divided into (1) an experimental group of 111 clients who received from 6 to 12 months of an intensive and graded series of vocational experiences, with supporting personal and therapeutic services, (2) a control group of 40, and (3) two comparison groups of 63 and 40 clients. Some purposes of the study were to (1) determine the degree to which a comprehensive rehabilitation center can assist the former patient, and the relation of client characteristics to success or failure, and (2) test hypotheses concerning the determinants of rehabilitation outcome. The innovated network of services significantly increased client employability but did not affect rehospitalization or personal and social adjustment. In general, the factors of client youth, previous employment experience, and counselor judgment of client potential were more related to favorable employment outcomes than was the program, per se, and initial staff assessments were more predictive of rehabilitation outcomes than were the results of psychometric tests. Employment in the unprotected open labor market remained a serious problem for the former mental patient. For a considerable proportion of discharged mental patients, vocational rehabilitation will not be effective unless it is accompanied by and integrated with a substantial network of supportive and therapeutic services. The appendixes, approximately 100 pages, include statistical data and reports by rehabilitation personnel. The study is summarized in vt 004 061. (jk)
