The Management of Antisocial and Aggressive Behavior in a Group Home Setting.
Scherrer, James L.
The philosophy and operation of a group home for adolescent girls with severe behavior problems are described. The history of Mary Bartelme Homes is traced, and the program's major foci of strengthening the girls' ego functioning, building good relationships with adults, and making the girls aware of the reality consequences of their actions are discussed. Seven program aspects are considered: the staffing arrangement, the staff attitude, the administrative organization, the activity program, the community's relationship, the school program, and the formal treatment (either group or individual therapy).
