AASCF Journal for Services to Children and Families Special Edition Reconstructing Residential Care March 2015









Editorial – James Anglin
I came away truly inspired by the spirit of open inquiry I had experienced, and reflecting on how far our child and youth care field has come over the past decade. Professional child and youth care journals have for many years urged practitioners and local agencies to embrace the task of knowledge development and the publishing of results so that this learning can be built upon as we engage with allied professions in the enterprise of service transformation. I hope that this issue of the AASCF can be distributed widely and shared across the child welfare sector, as it should inspire others to pick up the challenge of documenting practice-based evidence in support of more grounded and relevant evidence-based practice.
Onward and upward AASCF!
