Abstract

Sheltered workshops in Hong Kong faced a dilemma of productivity oriented versus treatment oriented management in rehabilitation. Very often, high productivity may mean low therapeutic values as the job may be routine and stressful. To the contrary, a good tailor-made individualized training and program may mean poor productivity and poor profit. In this paper, the writers describe this dilemma in detail. Also, several measures are suggested to resolve this dilemma. It is hoped that these measures can redevelop the sheltered workshop to be a good rehabilitation center and a good productive center for society.
