Beyond professionalism: The child and youth care worker as craftsman

Zvi Eisikovits, Jerome Beker

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In an effort to move the professionalization dialogue in child and youth care toward greater concern with the quality of client service and toward move conceptually-based consideration of the content of the work, the authors propose that the field be viewed as a craft. An initial approximation of such a conceptualization as it might look through the eyes of most current workers is followed by a discussion of possible implications for progress in significant areas of concern in the field.
