Transforming Child Welfare : Interdisciplinary Practices, Field Education, and Research Paperback

Edited by H. Monty Montgomery, Dorothy Badry, Don Fuchs, Daniel Kikulwe

Description

Canada has among the highest rate of children in foster care in the developed world-a national tragedy that has its roots in poverty, residential schooling, and other forms of colonialism.

Tackling the "wicked" and intransigent problems of child abuse and neglect, as well as FASD, encountered by social workers, educators, health care workers, and others, Transforming Child Welfare turns a close eye on systemic issues within the child welfare system.

Reflecting on previous strengths, and integrating research evidence with practical experience, the contributors to this volume provide professionals with best practice solutions that can be applied in different contexts.
