The aim of the study was to investigate and describe the relationship between the psychosocial well-being and supervision of Child and Youth Care Workers (CYCW) within Child and Youth Care Centers (CYCC) to determine whether the CYCW obtain sufficient psychosocial support within the workplace. Section A consists of two (2) parts. Part one (1) of Section A focuses on the research orientation and problem statement as well as a summary of the research methodology used to carry out the study. Part two (2) consists of the literature study that was conducted. The research problem of the study is as follows: CYCW is seen as the primary caregivers of children within CYCC. Due to various reasons such as child abuse and neglect, children are lawfully placed in the care of CYCC if the children are found in need of care and protection by the court. These children are exposed to a lot of trauma, which can lead to secondary trauma and even emotional burnout of those in whose care the children are placed. It is therefore important that CYCW acquire sufficient psychosocial support to ensure that they provide high quality services to the children. There are limited literature and studies available on the psychosocial well-being of CYCW. The problem statement led to one research objective and thus it was to determine if there was a connection between the psychosocial well-being and supervision of CYCW. Quantitative research metods and quantitative data collection method was used. The literature study focused on the ecological system theory, children in need of care and protection, CYCC in South Africa, CYCW, the psychosocial well-being CYCW and supervision within CYCC. Section B consists the journal article that will be submitted to the Social Work/Social Work Journal. The article consists of the research orientation, problem statement, research methodology and the results of the study. A demographic questionnaire and two (2) standardized questionnaires were used to collect the quantitative data. The one (1) questionnaire focused on the psychosocial well-being of CYCW and the other one on the relationship the CYCW had with their supervisor. Relationships between supervision and the psychosocial well-being of CYCW have been identified to make the findings of the study.
