HSF Resources

Some of the papers from early conferences are available for you to read and download.  These include Prof Heimler’s paper on the ‘significance of work’ which stemmed from his early work in the UK with unemployed men in London.  If you wish to know a little of the scope of research into Human Social Functioning and the Scale (HSSF), we include 2 chapters from a more recent thesis that gives an overview of research. Further HSF Resources will be made available in due course.
