Murphy, John W.; Callaghan, Karen A.
Adolescence, v24 n96 p891-900 Win 1989
Explores conceptual and practical differences between traditional and therapeutic foster care. Notes that therapeutic foster care is linked to emerging philosophy referred to as postmodernism. Cautions that, if this philosophical basis is not understood, thrust of therapeutic foster care may be seriously misconstrued, and community-based style of treatment may be destroyed. (Author)
