Abstract

In December 1972 the family psychiatric unit opened at Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria for the treatment of children under age 15 with emotional disturbances or behavior problems. Each child is admitted to the unit on a predetermined date for a pre-established period of five weeks, during which time the child's family is also involved in treatment. After the child is released from the unit, therapy continues for an additionalfive weeks in the family's home and then contact is terminated. To date more than 350 children have been admitted to the unit; a second admission has been required in only 21 cases.
