Supporting People with Severe Reputations in the Community


Michael W. Smull

This handbook presents the tools needed to develop better community capacity to support people with severe reputations. For conceptual convenience, it is divided into four components:

  • How people receive their reputations;
  • How to plan with the individual for community services;
  • How to recruit and develop the supports needed to implement the plan; and
  • How to avoid the most common abuses and perversions in providing supports.

While written in 1992, it’s a classic article and it still works!
