Aims and scope

Residential Treatment for Children & Youth is a peer-reviewed journal and the official journal of the Association of Children’s Residential Centers (ACRC), a leading professional organization in the field of residential care for children and youth.

Residential Treatment for Children & Youth aims to be a bridge between theory, practice, and policy, providing guidance and direction to residential care providers and practitioners to improve services for vulnerable children and youth in child welfare, mental health and juvenile justice systems. It addresses all issues relevant to residential care settings from staff retention, training, services, and funding to delivering specialized programs for diverse populations.

Special emphases are placed on best practices, models for the residential care setting, and the impact of policy on service delivery.

The Journal welcomes original research studies and case studies or conceptual papers that describe practice concepts or innovations. Residential Treatment for Children & Youth particularly invites papers from international colleagues engaged in residential care.
