The Youth Resource Center--A Systems Approach.
Aron, Robert D.; Gullotta, Thomas P.
This paper describes the Youth Resource Center (YRC) of Glastonbury, Connecticut--a multifaceted treatment facility. The YRC is based on a Systems-Interaction (SI) model of service, which maintains that a system can be changed by intervention at any point in the system; consequently, the same goals can be achieved through various target groups or individuals and various treatment approaches. The YRC is basically comprised of four program elements: (1) treatment (consisting of various therapeutic modalities, such as group therapy, family therapy, etc.); (2) education (such as equivalency preparation); (3) inservice training (workshops for staff and community-at-large presented by various professionals); and (4) creative experiences (such as art, music, dance workshops, kung-fu lessons.
