THE PLACE OF ETHICS IN THE HISTORY OF CHILD CARE
The ethics of child care are being examined as they have never been before. In what is ostensibly an ethical and altruistic field, how have we arrived at a situation where we wrestle with the kind of ethical issues which are thrown up by the case of Baby Peter in the United Kingdom and the Ryan Commission into residential child care in Ireland? How should this influence how we record, handle, and research these matters? This day will be an opportunity for delegates to explore the history and make what may well be a controversial examination of these troubling issues.
