Summary

Case presentations illustrating the use of various types of technIQues emphasize the need for long-term treatment facilities for poverty-stricken children and parents. The formulated treatment approach attempts to provide an emotionally corrective milieu for the child while he is living with his own family. It is contended that facilities should be an integral part of community mental health centers or independent facilities closely working with such centers. The therapy sessions, whether individual, group, family, or a combination treatment, should be supplemented by medication, health care, and environmental manipulation. Treatment should continue for one to four years, with follow-up as needed. The problem is providing quality service to a quantity of people. New methods of mental health intervention are needed. Community mental health programs should be developed, while treatment resources already in existence should be simultaneously expanded. This paper was presented at the 45th annual meeting of the American orthopsychiatric association (Chicago, March 20-23, 1968). (ph)
