Community Rehabilitation Services for People with Disabilities delves into the changes happening in the disability services in the United States. The book focuses on how these changes are affecting the way professionals and agencies relate to people with disabilities and their families. The text aims to provide an introductory view of the community revolution in disability services. The book is divided into three parts. Part 1 breaks down the underlying principles of the community revolution in disability services. Part 2 discusses the problems and issues in the implementation of these principles. Part 3 accounts for the changes in practices and value orientations of professionals involved in providing services for people with disabilities. The book will provide a rich source of insight for healthcare professionals, social workers, nurses, caregivers, teachers, counselors, psychiatrists, therapists, and community planners.
