From the vendor:

Relational Child and Youth Care Practice (formerly The Journal of Child & Youth Care, established 1982) is committed to promoting and supporting the profession of Child and Youth Care through disseminating the knowledge and experience of individuals involved in the day-to-day lives of young people.

This commitment is founded upon the belief that all human issues, including personal growth and development, are essentially “relational”.

Relational Child and Youth Care Practice used to be available via EBSCO's Academic Search Complete, but from 2015 onward it has only been available directly from the publisher. Abstracting and indexing (but not full-text) up to 2015 is still available in EBSCO's Academic Search Complete, and is also available in Proquest's Applied Social Sciences Abstracts (ASSIA) for current content.

For sample issues, visit the vendor's website.
