Current Issue

Scottish Journal of Residential Child Care Vol 17 No 2

In this issue - a special edition coinciding with the 19th annual Scottish Institute of Residential Child Care (SIRCC) conference - you will find peer-reviewed papers, commentaries, book reviews and some special pieces touching on the theme of the conference: the developmental approach to supporting children’s potential. Included amongst the pieces which cover education, leaving care, peer relationships, Adverse Care Experiences (ACEs), love, human rights and young people’s participation, is an article from Terje Halvorsen on the need to approach professional theories in residential care in a more useable way; and reflections from Jim Gillespie, CEO of Kibble Education and Care Centre, on the history and developments that have led many of the changes in group living.
