Group Living Work with the Unstable, Disturbed Cottage Group
The authors present a case study of a group of adolescent girls between the ages of 12 and 14 at the Pleasantville Cottage School operated by the Jewish Child Care Association of New York, over the period of roughly a year, during which the group transitioned from a chaotic and unstable state to a harmonious and stable one. They detail the various approaches taken by staff during the year, and explain that the key factor was the relationship of trust that developed between the cottage mother and the girls.
