Creating Work Opportunities for Europeans with Mental Handicap

Book

"Meaningful work has value, conferring esteem, companionship, and other benefits as well as an income on the worker. If well planned, it can enable the worker with mental handicap to become integrated in the workplace and thus in the wider community. But to achieve these goals, action is required at all levels - individual, family, agency, national and European" (p.5). This book documents the proceedings of the European Symposium "Rights and Realities" organised by St Michael's House Research in Dublin in 1990. It is aimed at members of the European Community, but the stress on the movement away from segregated work settings as an "on going goal of every society" is something that is obviously pertinent to Australians and Australian society.
