A Course-Based Qualitative Inquiry into the Lived Educational Experience of Child and Youth Care in Becoming More Authentic
The basic contention of the relational-centred philosophical foundation of CYC practice is that being “authentic” runs much deeper than the notion to “just be yourself”. Being oneself can mean that a self-centred, uncaring person can be authentic by being true to their self-centeredness, which is not the case. From a relational-centred CYC perspective, authenticity is a life‐long process of self‐discovery, humility, and in some instances healing and forgiveness potential.
