  • THE ACUTE ADMISSION WARD AS A THERAPEUTIC-COMMUNITY AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PSYCHIATRY Steiner, H., HALDIPUR, C. V., STACK, L. C. 1982; 139 (7): 897-901

    Abstract:

    The authors evaluated six acute short-stay admission wards in a community mental health center using the sociometric Ward Atmosphere Scale. There was an attempt to run three of the six wards as therapeutic communities. No differences were found on Ward Atmosphere Scale dimensions between the therapeutic communities and other types of programs, nor did the therapeutic communities conform to an empirically derived therapeutic community program dimension profile. Possible reasons for this failure and its implications for community mental health centers are discussed.
