A Description of Services Offered in an Interim Child Care Agency-Based on the Policies of the Cardinal McCloskey School and Home
Background of the Study. Today a modern institution for children provides such a variety of facets and combination of skills previously unknown in the field of public child welfare, that it can be compared to the highly specialized clinic and modern hospital which have so much more to offer in the way of diagnostic facilities than does the general practitioner. In the institution it is possible to bring together a greater concentration of professional skills in the study of the individual than it is ever possible to obtain in the community regardless of the adequacy of the resources. There is, however, a wide variation in the quality of the services offered by institutions, and the majority of them have still not reached their greatest potentialities. To be able to capitalize on the variety of methods now recognized in treatment, the development of their potential awaits only the adequate staffing of the institutions with personnel who are trained, experienced, and have the personality to be able to use the values which are part of the institutional environment.
