TL;DR: A brief survey of the organisation in the United Kingdom of existing facilities for rehabilitation, training and sheltered employment precedes a description of five years work in a voluntary, non-profit making organisation (Bristol Industrial Therapy Organisation) as mentioned in this paper.
Abstract: A brief survey of the organisation in the United Kingdom of existing facilities for rehabilitation, training and sheltered employment precedes a description of five years work in a voluntary, non-profit making organisation (Bristol Industrial Therapy Organisation (Bristol) Limited). The classification of patients referred during this period is reported and the outcome of attendance. The success and failure, according to sources of referral and diagnosis, is commented on and a two-year follow-up is given. A summary of outcome for the first eleven years of the Organisation is recorded. — The present state of industrial therapy is discussed and the need for research and for workers in the field to become more highly specialised is stressed. — The change in clientele is noted with an increase in referral of patients suffering from subnormality. A likely increase in persons with personality disorders is anticipated. — The different methods of approach by I. T. O. to the problem of reemployment are enumerated and the applicability of the I. T. O. principle to other groups, for example, ex-prisoners, prisoners, physically handicapped, etc. is suggested. The strength accruing to the Organisation from close links with the hospital and community is noted and the Organisations view that there should not be separate rehabilitation services for the psychiatrically ill and for the physically ill is stated. The continuation of voluntary organisations such as I. T. O. is considered desirable but not in the continuous provision of services which are clearly the responsibility of statutory authorities. These authorities must give fresh thought to the problem of providing services appropriate to modern needs.

TL;DR: Work has a significant effect on a person's life, his psychological state or his illness, and it is not easily incorporated into the treatment and management of the psychiatrically ill as mentioned in this paper.
Abstract: While work has a significant effect on a person’s life, his psychological state or his illness, it is not easily incorporated into the treatment and management of the psychiatrically ill. Doctors and nurses tend to believe that the sick need rest, not labour. They and the public often equate work with industrialisation and confuse it with a dehumanised assembly line and piecework model of human relations. This view is oversimple, for it neglects the equally dehumanising effects of idleness and unemployment. By using work to help people to adapt in society, one does not endorse society’s norms nor expect people to conform to them. To adapt socially is to be able to deal with the complexities of everyday living. Such adaptation may lead to wealth or poverty, happiness or unhappiness or may involve attacking, neglecting or upholding the established social order. It may be more important to adjust to family life than to work pr leisure, although for economic and social reasons both are very intimately related to family adjustment. Everyone has views on work. It is not only protestants who subscribe to what is known as “the protestantwork ethic”, or non-protestants who have visions of work in dark, satanic mills.

TL;DR: In this article, Strotzka et al. describe the wichtigsten Methoden, ein groses Kollektiv von irgend einer Richtung therapeutisch zu erfassen, sind der Kontakt mit and die Beeinflussung von Menschen, die in this group ein hohes Prestige besitzen and als Meinungsbild-ner bekannt sind.
Abstract: „Eine der wichtigsten Methoden, ein groses Kollektiv von irgend einer Rich-tung therapeutisch zu erfassen, sind der Kontakt mit und die Beeinflussung von Menschen, die in dieser Gruppe ein hohes Prestige besitzen und als Meinungsbild-ner bekannt sind. Fur die Zwecke der Sozialpsychiatrie handelt es sich meist um Fragen der Gesundheitserziehung in Bezug auf psychische Erkrankungen, um den Abbau von Vorurteilen, die Beseitigung von krankheitserzeugenden Spannungen und um ahnliche Aufgaben… Als Schlusselpersonen in unserem Sinne kommen zuerst die institutionalisierten Autoritatsrollen wie Lehrer, Priester, Beamte mit viel Parteienverkehr, Arzte, Vorgesetzte aller Art und vor allem Politiker in Frage. Weiterhin kamen Funktionare in Vereinen und Organisationen, Kunstler, Journalisten usw. in Betracht“(Strotzka, 1972).
