Changing career patterns in israeli child care work

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Changes in career patterns of residential child care workers in Israel during the last fifty years are described and ana- Iyzed. Using identity theory and organizational knowledge about careers to generate questions from historical materials, the paper then argues that the present low status of child care work in Israel is related to (1) the changing social mandate of residential care and changing kinds of clients in the system and (2) the lack of fit between existing needs and models of practice.
