Abstract

Paid employment for the psychiatrically hospitalized patient has become an overwhelmingly acceptable arrangement. Dr. William Winick in Industry in the Hospital: Mental Rehabilitation Through Work describes the next phase, industrial therapy known as CHIRP (Community—Hospital Industry Rehabilitation Program). The program focuses on developing a relationship between private industry and the mental hospital. There are three essential levels: factory work in the hospital, community work while hospitalized, and postdischarge employment. In reviewing both the related philosophical and historical literature and in discussing the need for predischarge employment of patients, the author sufficiently demonstrates the need such programs. The second section of the monograph contains a variety of information basic to innovating the services, from contacting of prospective industries to planning storage space. In this sense Dr. Winick has accomplished his stated goals.
