Abstract

Over the past years, psychiatric services have been continuously faced with the challenge of providing comprehensive care to people suffering from severe mental illnesses. Legal and conceptual advances like the UN convention on the rights of persons with disabilities or the concept of recovery have rendered this challenge more actual and urgent than ever. However, psychiatric institutions often show only low levels of cooperation and integration between their different services. Hence, they need to develop new ways of bridging all sectors of care in order to help people most in need on their way to recovery and full inclusion in society.In this research topic, European researchers and clinicians present new ways of dealing with this essential issue by developing strategies and interventions on both institutional and non-institutional levels. The nine contributions of this ebook thus reflect actual clinical and conceptual considerations. They all aim at improving quality of care and providing adequate support to people suffering from severe mental illness.

Abstract

ZusammenfassungDie soziale Integration Zugewanderter hängt davon ab, dass deren Teilhabechancen und Teilhabekompetenzen ausgebaut werden. Dies erfordert eine entsprechende Ausrichtung und Koordination sozialer Dienstleistungen. Der Leitfaden basiert auf Erkenntnissen aus einem mehrjährigen Forschungsprojekt und stellt dar, wie auf lokaler Ebene Netzwerke Professioneller und Ehrenamtlicher geknüpft und parallel Case Management als auf Einzelfälle bezogenes Handlungskonzept etabliert werden kann. Auf der Grundlage rechts- und sozialwissenschaftlicher Analysen werden hierzu Konzepte und erprobte Instrumente vorgestellt. Der Leitfaden wendet sich an alle im Rahmen lokaler Sozial- und Migrationspolitik Tätigen und Lehrende der Rechts- und Sozialwissenschaften.AbstractThe social integration of refugees and other immigrants depends on the development of their chances of participating in society and on making them more proficient in doing so, a strategy which requires the corresponding alignment and coordination of local social services. This handbook practically uses the results of a large research project. It shows how to build up networks of professionals and volunteers and to establish case management as a concept and method in order to coordinate individually oriented services. The handbook presents a theoretical foundation, but also practical concepts and useful instruments with which to implement them. It will appeal to those who work in the context of local social and migration policy, as well as academics and teachers in the field of social sciences.
