Primary Care in Secondary Settings: Inherent Strains
Maier, Henry W.; Garfat, Thom
Child & Youth Services, v27 n1-2 p87-116 2005
There is an ever present struggle associated with reconciling "primary" care requirements for children and young people living in group care programs with "secondary" organizational demands imposed by external agency expectations and administrative requirements. That struggle finds its expression and potential balance in the daily work of staff. This classic manuscript in the literature of child and youth care offers an enduring analysis of the interplay between primary and secondary care issues that shape responsive group care services. (Contains 3 notes.)
