Institutional Transfers: Analysis of Five High Schools Girls Who Were Removed to the Lt. Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. Home, Bronx, New York, September, 1956
Today, more than any other period in history, great concern and thought is being given to the adolescent boy and girl. The main reason for this is the delinquent or asocial behavior that many adolescents demonstrate in their various environmental settings. Because this behavior has gone to the extreme, many attempts in local as well as state departments are being considered to try to control, or, at least, provide means to prevent this socially unaccepted behavior. The purpose of this study is to share with the reader some of the present day behavior reactions of adolescents in a child-caring institution. Most of the adolescents tend to display some behavior difficulties and attracted the concern of the administrative bodies of such institutions. These people are trying to understand and decide the best plans for their dependent adolescents.
