Socio-Cultural Causes of Institutional Abuse in Japan: The Issues of Leadership, Authority and Power Relation.
Tsuzaki, Tetsuo
Early Child Development and Care, v133 p87-99 Jun 1997
Examines the historical and sociocultural context of Japanese residential child care. Presents three case studies of institutional child abuse to explore its socio-cultural causes. Concludes that lack of leadership in public homes, the wrong leadership authorized unprofessionally in private homes, and the lack of universal systems of public inquiry and professional inspection contribute to abuse in Japanese institutions.
