Abstract

This chapter looks at the development of a residential unit working with sexually aggressive young men. Overall this theoretically and empirically rich volume draws on new research from across Europe and Canada. Contributions stem from a broad spectrum of researchers and practitioners in the field, engaging in comparative international perspectives of problems of enduring relevance. This book particularly focuses on anti-oppressive practice, foster care, mainstreaming in education, ethnic origin, competency level and research as a tool in residential care. The book will make a significant impact to the literature on social work and child and family welfare.
