About this book


A great deal has been written about the decarceration movement which involves the transfer of mental patients from the mental hospital to the community. Here the authors look at the impact of that process as it affects patients and staff alike once the patients leave the hospital. The book deals with a number of matters raised by decarceration, not the least about the types of care to be experienced by the patients and the likelihood of offering forms of rehabilitation.
