Abstract

This paper critiques conflict theory and its applications in residential child care. It begins with brief previews of the theory and residential child care, and followed with analysis of two cases in children’s homes. Despite the fact that dualism, clash of interest and positive change are debatable concepts, the theory is generally found useful for social workers where conflict situations are inevitable in residential child care.
