Youth, Poverty, and the Creation of New Settings

In the 1960s, the War on Poverty dramatized the plight of "the other America." Simultaneously helping professions in general and clinical psychology in particular grappled with redefined responsibilities to society's disenfranchised citizenry.Goldenberg advocates an alliance between social activist and clinician in the arena of community action. In this seminal case study of New Haven's Residential Youth Center (RYC), he examines the evolution of a new setting for human renewal and draws inferences for the creation of other non-self-defeating programs.
