Abstract

The psychoeducational approach to psychiatric illness addresses the need for better information about mental illness and its treatment for the patient and family. Most programs focus on the family and its involvement with the patient; in a social rebabilitation program in Sacramento, California, the staff use psychoeducational techniques with chronic psychiatric patients living in the community apart from their families. Educational approaches are employed in all aspects of the program but are most extensively used in the transitional employment service, through work readiness seminars and a graduated continuum of volunteer service, training, and employment; in the adult basic education program; and in the medication education project, which includes weekly seminars for patients and a variety of written materials.
