'And football saved me in a way…': An application of the CYC approach to a achool football team in Scotland

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    This article sets the context for a small study of a football team in one residential school for children with emotional and behavioural difficulties in Scotland (for a more detailed account of this study, see Steckley, 2007). The views of staff and young people about the school team were explored in depth, and a mosaic of their views is offered here. Within this mosaic, links to several characteristics of the child and youth care (CYC) approach are discussed, providing a rich example of a CYC approach to sport. Difficulties and complexities of practice related to the school football team are also discussed, and some implications for practice are offered in conclusion.
