Knowledge utilization in residential child and youth care practice
Child Welfare League of America, 1991 - Family & Relationships - 330 pages
This monumental, combined effort of more than 19 experts in the field is designed to serve as a much-needed resource of effective, research-based practice. It focuses on the utilization of knowledge as an interactive process between the field and the residential group care practitioner. Its 15 chapters and numerous case studies and examples amply illustrate this dynamic process in many of the critical domains of residential child and youth care practice, with useful implications for nonresidential settings as well.
