Incorporating quotes APA basics
According to Jones (1998) “Students often had difficulty using APA style, especially
when it was their first time” (p.199)
Jones (1998) found that “students often had difficulty using APA style” (p.199);what
implications does this have for teachers?
Integrate Theory & Practice
I visited the (CYC Milieu) on (date) and it was a significant experience……
Chapter 1
Mark Krueger (2007) says that storying is an effective way of understanding our self and
how we bring our self to child and youth care practice
In 1969 child and youth care was described as working with emotionally disturbed
children in residential settings
The International Child and Youth Care Education Consortium
A group of educators primarily from North America who formed in 1990 to try and bring
some consistency to educational preparation for the field. 1992 the official definition was
created:
o Professional child and youth care focuses on infant, child and adolescent, both
normal and with special needs, with the context of family, the community and the
life span
o Developmental-ecological perspective emphasizes the interaction between
people and the physical and social environments, including cultural and political
settings
o Professionals promote the optimal development of children, youth and their
families in a variety of settings such as early care education, community-based
child youth development programs, parent education and family support, school
based programs, community mental health, group homes, residential centers,
rehabilitation programs, pediatric health care and juvenile justice programs
o Child and Youth care practice includes in assessing client and program needs,
designing and implementing programs and planned environments, integrating
developmental, preventative and therapeutic requirements into living space,
contributing to the development of knowledge and professions and participating
in systems interventions through direct care, supervision, administration
teaching, research,consultation, and advocacy

programs, planned environments and the utilization of daily life to facilitate
change
Passion
CYC workers are passionate about what they do
Some say it’s their calling
Don’t care about care, it’s their passion and devotion to helping young people that
sustains them
Austin and Halpin (1989); CYC is a calling because “caring” is a calling and it is
devalued by society and community
Caring
An active set of elements in the work of CYC practitioners. These elements are
composed of both the individual practitioner and the life-space environment in which
both the child and practitioner are located (Gharabaghi and Stuart 2013)
Care is often assumed to be a value-neutral intervention
However it deals with many peoples dos and don'ts and shoulds and shouldn'ts
3 factors needed for a caring relationship in a caring profession
o The condition of need
o An attitude of concern
o Intentional involvement in intervention
The Milieu
The daily environment of young people, including with their families, where they are
living, learning and relating to others
Therapeutic or educative milieu originally meant 24 hours a day
Competence and Strengths
Developmental care is a central theme in CYC
o Practitioners interact with young people and families and personalize their work
with considerations to factors that change overtime
Identify strengths in 7 different areas
o Talents or athletic competencies
o Resilience in the face of challenging circumstances
o Goals or hopes for the future
o Personal or social and community resources
o Borrowed strengths based on the advice of another person
o Strengths based on past accomplishments
o Hidden strengths represented by behaviours that are currently “at risk”
Focus more on strengths and minimize deficits
Sometimes bad behaviour has helped one survive in poverty, unequal opportunity or
violence
Children’s Space and Time
Make their time with the child meaningful
Space and time are adapted to meet the child’s needs
Consider multiple factors when it comes to time and space
Routines structure the child’s life by providing stability and predictability
Helping children understand the concept of time is the core developmental task
Experiential
CYC is relational and involves use of self as a way to grow and develop. These
characteristics combined in the concept of experiential learning
Learning that comes from self reflection helps later in the work
Chapter 2
Childhood is a social construction
Children are tabula rasa-John Locke
Jean Jacques Rousseau stressed children are inherently good
