by Ashrafzadeh, Mohammad H., D.H.A., University of Phoenix, 2008, 185; 3309253
Abstract (Summary)

The object of this study was to understand the cultural aspects of treatment for the mentally challenged in Iran. A qualitative method was used to conceptualize the provision of community services for this population. Data were compiled through surveys, public documents, and interviews with parents. The need for training and governmental funds, as well as community’s desire for support, emerged as themes. The results implied a sense of shared responsibility between parents and the community. The data may suggest that education and training could be implemented across the country to improve the services for the disabled.
