About this item

Implementing Therapeutic Residential Care with Children and Adolescents presents a foundation framework for well-functioning residential care, and outlines the process of therapeutic care program implementation. It is written for anyone involved in seeking to provide or support good residential practice, one that works in the best interests of children and adolescents in the contexts of their families and communities. The framework of the book is geared towards those working at various levels in the child welfare system, from direct care to policy formulation, and incorporates quantitative outcome measures and qualitative data gathered over three years and across eight intervention sites. Specific examples and illustrations connect the conceptual ideas and considerations with day-to-day activities for staff, and it examines the adult mindset development in relation to how agencies can promote a “child’s best interest” culture. This book is also an ideal resource for learning strategies to engage politicians, policy makers, and the media.
