Human Services for Children and Youth. Bibliography Series.
The issue of age-segregated services has always been an important aspect of the problem of human services delivery. Those interested in the special needs of children and youth have attempted to address the problem. The response, to offer more comprehensive services to their clients, has had two major facets. On the one hand, many have sought to effect reform through attempts at intra-service cooperation and coordination--a type of vertical integration. This approach seeks to strengthen the ties that link all services aimed at children and youth. On the other hand, some have tried inter-service or horizontal integration. This method seeks to weave children and youth services into the overall fabric of human services. This bibliography contains citations focusing on each of these approaches. The purpose is to provide an overview of the general movement toward innovation and reform in services to children and youth. Each entry is extensively annotated. (Author)
