As case management has replaced institutional care for mental
health patients in recent decades, case management theory has grown
in complexity and variety of models. But how are these models
translated into real experience? How do caseworkers use both
textbook and practical knowledge to assist clients with managing
their medication and their money? Using ethnographic and
historical-sociological methods, Meds, Money, and Manners: The Case
Management of Severe Mental Illness uncovers unexpected differences
between written and oral accounts of case management in practice.
In the process, it suggests the possibility of small acts of
resistance and challenges the myth of social workers as agents of
state power and social control.
