The Social Servie care plans in this manual cover the possible psychosocial needs residents may have in response to issues, illnesses, medications, and/or other factors.

Solutions come from identifying the interpersonal ABCs of behavior the antecedents, the behaviors, and the consequences and using communication techniques and other effective psychological approaches to encourage positive behavior.
