Excerpt
Introduction The Consultation was hosted by the WHO collaborating centre for research and training in mental health in Sofia, Bulgaria, and jointly organized by the centre and the WHO Regional Office for Europe. It was opened by Dr Toma Tomov on behalf of the Sofia collaborating centre and Dr 3. Sampaio Faria on behalf of the Regional Office. The meeting was a follow-up of a previous consultation on psychosocial interventions to prevent disability and improve quality of life, held in Sofia, 6-9 October 1986, aimed at planning a multicentre comparative study of psychosocial interventions. The participants recognized that operationalization and comparability of interventive interactions pose difficult methodological problems that need to be handled first. It was suggested that these problems could be attenuated by selecting intervention programmes that meet certain criteria (e.g. shown effectiveness, well developed training programmes), by intercentre collaboration in the training of staff, and by strict control for precision in the application of technologies. Nevertheless, it was felt that an important source of variance will still remain unaccounted for. This concerns the contextual characteristics of the various settings that might be selected for implementation of psychosocial programmes. Among these characteristics are the existing organizational structure, normative base and professional ideology of a given system. These define the relationships of the team or programme to other systems such as referring agencies, health administration and other institutions. They also determine the response to the process of innovation associated with the introduction of intervention technologies different from previous ones. It has been suggeste& that handling the issues of context in a specific way, particularly with regards to innovation, is a distinguishing feature of successful psychosocial programmes independently of the techniques they employ or the populations they target.
