Two New Publications from the Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion!

The NIDRR-funded Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion has two new publications:

Future Research Recommendations Report

The report is a guide to community inclusion researchers in the years ahead.  The full set of recommendations was developed at the Collaborative’s Second International Conference on Community Inclusion of Individuals with Psychiatric Disabilities in September 2011.  The recommendations address six key areas where new research about community inclusion is needed:  Vulnerable Populations, Education and Employment, Geographic Information Systems, Community Engagement, Civic Activity, and Intimacy and Parenting.

Supporting Students:  A Model Policy for Colleges and Universities

The 2007 monograph, “Supporting Students:  A Model Policy for Colleges and Universities” from the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law has been reissued by the Temple Collaborative.  The monograph provides a set of model policies for colleges and universities to use in responding to complex issues raised by college students in crisis.  It suggests guiding principles and specific activities related to offering appropriate counseling and referral, assuring confidentially, providing reasonable accommodations, making and ending leaves of absence, utilizing disciplinary procedures in a nondiscriminatory way, and educating and training university personnel.

These documents and many other resources are available through the Temple Collaborative’s website.
