In this highly-regarded work, Whittaker forcefully advocates the need for residential treatment as part of a larger continuum of treatment, and explores the context of the setting itself as a dynamic therapeutic factor. Now available in paperback, this book remains among the most notable attempts in the field to utilize an ecological perspective.
