About this book

After measuring the Quality of Life and identifying the deficiencies in your community, what steps should you take to improve the Quality of Life? This volume reviews methods for improving the Quality of Life that are based upon improving each of the ten domains of the Quality of Life; steps to improve health, means of reducing environmental toxins, orientation to bring about better self-concept and mental health, and so forth. In short, enhance the social and physical environment and improve the Quality of Life. In each of the ten domains, steps are set forth for eliminating undesirable and debilitating features of the domain. Social change comes about by the application of devised steps. The process has been called ‘telesis’ and it can be defined as the application of intelligent, well-tested, interventions to being about improvement. In some cases it may effect change quickly and others may require a continuing process of adjustment and change. As a handbook for community workers, this volume provides a framework for intervention that could lead to a better tomorrow.
