Group Care Practice with Children Revisited
Fulcher, Leon C.; Ainsworth, Frank
Child & Youth Services, v27 n1-2 p1-26 2005
Using a comparative analysis group care for children and young people is examined as an occupational focus, as a field of study and as a domain of practice in programs that range from residential institutions to group homes and kin group foster care. Structural issues that shape the interplay between organizational dynamics and interpersonal processes are considered, as well as the ways in which group care services have evolved historically and continue to feature prominently in the health, education, justice and welfare systems of both developed and developing countries. (Contains 3 figures and 4 tables.)
