A child care worker's casebook

  • Brian Gannon


Three child and youth care scenarios are presented, illustrating (1) how young people's behavior can obscure what they really need from us, (2) the empowerment and disempowerment of direct care workers and those in care, and (3) vicious cycles that can “catch” us if we are not alert to avoid them, followed by an analysis of the implications of each of the scenarios.
