Meyer, Eleanor G.
MetadataShow full item record
The scope of this paper is three-fold. First, I shall develop the present day problem of juvenile delinquency and show the role of a residential treatment center in meeting a social need of our society. Secondly. I shall trace the history of the present Fred Finch Home, which, in itself, reflects the changing needs of the times. Finally, I shall describe the program of the institution today: its objectives, treatment techniques, and current problems. I shall not record any case histories, because I was requested not to and because follow-up studies have not been made to evaluate the effectiveness of the program.
