Abstract [en]

Youths´ norm breaking behavior is a global phenomenon, and there are different strategies of opinions on how to rehabilitate youths with norm-breaking behavior placed in residential care depending on countries and residential treatment centers (RTCs). There is almost a unanimous agreement within western oriented research that treatment essentials, such as positive interactions between staff and residents, are valuable for positive treatment outcomes. The aim of the present study is to investigate institutional treatment and treatment essentials in a RTC in Sri Lanka. The empiric findings have been compared to relevant research results in general, and with control theory and Levin’s theory on people-changing organizations in particular. The study has a qualitative approach and is based on interviews with staff members at the RTC along with observations and statistics. The result of the study is that structure, understandable rules, a busy schedule and a high level of family involvement are treatment essentials under optimal conditions. In the discussion, the authors discuss how to perform treatment under optimal conditions.
