Abstract

One of the major reasons for the confusion around community care is the lack of an ideology to guide and influence its implementation. Normalization is probably the most relevant theory in this field yet it is riven with contradictions and conflicts. This article examines these conflicts and proposes that normalization needs to develop a perspective on power and powerlessness if it is to respond adequately to the challenges of providing community care in the 1990s.
