Making Life Work

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter presents the goal plans at Driggs House. Goal plans at Driggs House are the technologies at the center of the group home’s individual work with residents. Goal plans formalize what conduct can be known and seen, and how it should be acted on, as clinically warrantable conduct, by transforming the needs of individual residents into practical matters of clinical work. A resident’s goal plans are filed in the “Progress” section of his or her treatment book. A copy is also filed in the service coordinator’s book as documentary support for the individual service plan. All staff contribute to the daily gathering of data on all residents. The process simplifies the task of documenting the progress of all the residents at the end of each shift of the counselor who happens to be doing the data.
