Early in my career Lorraine set me on a journey that had me rethink almost everything I thought I knew about Child and Youth Care. From learning to work with sexually abused youth, to understanding that to “Discipline is to Teach”, to getting my head around the “Catastrophe of Compliance”, I was the disciple at her feet.
