Residential group care as a socializing environment: Toward a broader perspective

Mordecai Arieli, Jerome Beker, Yitzhak Kashti

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Residential group care has often been viewed as antithetical to healthy normalizing developmental processes for troubled or "at-risk" children and youth, yet it appears in other settings to be the method of choice for leadership preparation for the elite. This chapter examines group care generically and attempts to bring implications from programs in the latter category to bear on those in the former.
