Emmanuel Grupper, Rivka A. Eisikovits

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper highlights the professional socialization process of child and youth care workers from a new point of view, namely, focusing on the existential needs of beginning practitioners for a period of moratorium. The data gathered during an ethnographic study of newly recruited group workers in Israeli residential institutions led the authors to the conceptualization of a new model, the "Fostering Moratorium."
