Developing Social Competencies in Group Care Practice
Small, Richard W.; Fulcher, Leon C.
Child & Youth Services, v27 n1-2 p51-73 2005
Any discussions about specialized helping environments for children or young people would be incomplete without reference to the relationships found between practices in group care centers and schools. This involves thinking of a child's total environment as a curriculum for teaching competencies and learning outcomes important to daily living. The task involves making a conscious effort to deal with a child's functioning in the present, thereby avoiding diagnostic conclusions that emphasize difficulties in one area of their life as the cause of learning problems.
