The Coalition for Community Living places particulate emphasis on the following beliefs:
1. The power and value of participant teams: specifically:
- In the usefulness and appropriateness of organizing participants into teams;
- That teamwork is as important as any other skill taught or learned in Psychosocial Rehabilitation;
- That group dynamics are an omnipresent force and useful tool in Psychosocial Rehabilitation;
- That interdependence is a more mature stage of human development than independence.
2. The ultimate responsibility for problem-solving rests with the participant team; practitioner input must be limited to consultation; never direction.
3. The usefulness and appropriateness of affirmative industries (i.e., consumer run business) as a strategy for achieving vocational and related Psychosocial Rehabilitation goals.
4. Increasing the social status of individuals diagnosed with psychiatric conditions should be a primary goal of Psychosocial Rehabilitation.
5. True empowerment flows only from responsibility. An individual’s role as a productive citizen has more significance for Psychosocial Rehabilitation than their role as a consuming citizen.
6. Community modification is an effective Psychosocial Rehabilitation strategy with respect to living arrangements.
7. The power and value of integrated services.
