Residential Child and Youth Care literature?


My name is Vesna and I am doing a 4th year Child and Youth Care practicum at a residential licensing department. As part of my practicum I will be doing a literature review on innovative, practices/approaches in child and youth residential facilities around the world.

If anyone can suggest some literature or programs that would be great.

Thank you

Vesna Miskin
