Description

This compendium is a collection of activities for assessing and developing a person’s desire to participate in rehabilitation services. It was designed for use with persons with long-term psychiatric disabilities in psychiatric centers or outpatient settings (e.g., continuing day treatment and intensive psychiatric rehabilitation treatment programs). It was developed from activities designed by the psychiatric rehabilitation teams in the New York State psychiatric centers following a five-year transformation process undertaken by the New York State Office of Mental Health to infuse their mental health system with the philosophy and technology of psychiatric rehabilitation. Each activity is outlined in a step-by-step fashion.
