Is statewide deinstitutionalization of children's services a forward or backward social movement? : a program of the Staff Training for Child Welfare Services Project by George Roger Thomas( Book )

5 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reviewed is the movement toward deinstitutionalization of handicapped children in terms of the sources of pressures toward deinstitutionalization, alternatives, effects of institutional experience on children, and possible consequences of the movement. Pressures discussed are those deriving from the assumed negative effects of institutionalization on children and those deriving from social reform actions and movements (litigation, legislation, and citizen pressures). Alternative options mentioned are the following: shorten length of stay in institutions, cut down referrals for admissions, develop a phase out plan, and move toward a highly differentiated system of institutions. Commentary is cited on the present knowledge concerning effects of the institutional experience on children in such areas as dehumanization, treatment effects, effects of institutional structure and placement process, effects of geographic distance, and costs of institutional care. The following service alternatives are considered: foster family care, group home care, community-based services, and strengthening family life. Some possible unintended consequences are discussed. Concluding assessments include the following recommendations: a sound rationale for deinstitutionalization--the rights of children; public airing of any plan for deinstitutionalization and demonstration of a relationship with State services; feasibility of absorption of the population; and gradual implementation of the plan. A bibliography of approximately 325 publications is provided. (Im)

Burma in strategic perspective : renewing discussion of options by Lewis M Stern( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"U.S. policy has sought to nudge the junta in Burma toward a more reasonable approach to its dilemma, either in the form of managing Aung San Suu Kyi's house arrest in a semitransparent fashion, allowing the release of imprisoned prodemocracy activists and the National League for Democracy cadre, agreeing to visits from United Nations special representatives, or accepting regional advice and guidance at critical moments. But Burma is a minuet dramatizing the 'one step forward, two steps backward' description of progress. Even as the administration of President Barack Obama commits itself in principle to reaching out to Burma, events conspire against another effort to coax the junta toward a reasonable, regionally acceptable solution to its hard edge. Exigencies occasioned by Cyclone Nargis compelled a limited 'opening' in the aftermath of the humanitarian crisis, but these were no watershed events signaling a more reasonable posture by the junta toward its neighbors, toward the West, or toward the United States. Nevertheless, they did represent instances of change, and they did provide the foundation for regrouping to determine whether there was a basis for altering some U.S. tactical approaches to Burma. The question is, to what extent do these slight changes represent a real basis for confidence in forward movement?"--Page 1
