How worthwhile to be bad into residential care?
Keywords:Adolescents, conflicts, residential care, oppositive and transgressive behaviours
AbstractThe article presents the results produced by an intervention-research conducted in a residential community for adolescents located in the northern Italy. The transcriptions of six educational meetings were analyzed, which amount to a total of 22 hours and 27 minutes. The purpose of the survey is to understand the relevance and the amount of the topic discussed by the educators during the meetings in relation to the ability to maintain a balanced attention on all the cases taken in charge. The results show how the attention placed by educators in the residential care does not follow the logic of fair distribution, but refers to the priority attributed to the management of conflict and the oppositive/transgressive behaviors implemented by adolescents.
