Abstract

Modern psychiatric facilities are usually staffed by representatives of psychiatry, psychology, social work, nursing, occupational therapy, and recreational therapy. While each group has in one way or another indicated interest in research, the current overwhelming need for treatment and the dearth of professionally trained personnel have made it necessary for many workers to neglect research activities almost entirely. By tradition and purpose, most psychiatric hospitals focus on service functions and the clinician in this setting is expected to accept this as his principal responsibility. Too often research is viewed as a luxury to be enjoyed sometime in the future when the case load is lighter and leisure time is available.
