A Study of Ten Adolescent Boys Formerly in Institutional Care: Now Under the Supervision and Guidance of the Catholic Guardian Society
"Every art and every inquiry, and similarly every action and pursuit is thought to aim at some good; and for this reason the good has rightly been declared to be that which all things aim." Background of the Study. The vastness of the problem of understanding and satisfying human needs seems overwhelming to the student of research. One wonders where to begin and with whom. The writer’s experience in the field of social welfare has been with children mainly, based on the conviction that adulthood is but a reflection of what has preceded it and that childhood is a period of life important in itself. It has become increasingly evident that a disrupted childhood will produce a disrupted adult. Are there many who will disagree that a stable family is the nucleus of a stable society? Our acute awareness of the importance of a balanced interplay of the qualities of human nature has been but a silent plea from our youth to assist them in the realization and satisfaction of those elements where the balance has been upset.
