A political economy of Residential Child Care

16th July 2022, Jonathan Stanley 

“Wherever professional conviction coincides with the direction dictated by financial constraints, it always proves a powerful combination”

“…justice versus welfare, ideology becomes more significant than empirical evidence”

…personal or local experience made general, and assumptions that may have persisted without a critical analysis for decades becom(e) a cultural account that develops deep psychological resonance”.

…’organisational defences against anxiety’ where we hold to what we think is a correct view or practice with uncompromising resistance to crumbling even in the face of unquestionable evidence to the contrary.
