Gould Farm: A life of sharing by William J McKee

William Gould was a visionary farmer who created a community for social work in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts. From its people suffering mental illness to develop positive attitudes & live productive lives. The oldest residential community in America for mental health rehabilitation, Gould Farm has evolved on a concept that is social, not medical, yet has won the applause of most psychiatrists. Its kindness of spirit, its relative effectiveness, & its success in limiting costs have made it a model for replication. The book tells the story of this community vividly, objectively, readably. It offers perceptive biography, telling personal accounts, & clearly stated intellectual background. It recounts how a combination of balances - economic, administrative, social, & spiritual - led to conflict but also permitted change. The book connects Gould Farm to nineteenth-century movements, including moral treatment & the transcendental Brook Farm community, as well as to more modern movements - the social gospel, pastoral counseling, & milieu therapy. It is a fascinating social history (Professor David McAllester). The author has known Gould Farm for a lifetime. The illustrator was formerly a guest of Gould Farm. Order from William J.
