Child and youth care through a constructive-developmental lens

Heather Modlin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Previously, I have written about the discrepancy that exists between child and youth care as described in the literature, and child and youth care as it occurs in practice (Modlin, 2013). Instead of being a therapeutic environment, residential care can become quite the opposite. The pervasive frustration and anxiety that can be experienced by the staff, coupled with the entrenched emotional distress of the young people, often results in power struggles and ‘counter-aggression’ (Brendtro & Ness, 1983) between the staff and the young people
