Walking in the Good Way / Ioterihwakwaríhshion Tsi Íhse
Aboriginal Social Work Education
Edited by Ingrid Thompson Cooper, Gail Stacey Moore
Offering concrete direction for some and validation for others, this groundbreaking book encourages engagement in much-needed discourse on Indigenous social work education. Centred on the strengths, weaknesses, and healing powers of Indigenous social work education programs, the twelve original articles in this collection cover the efforts made over the past twenty-five years to develop and deliver social work education that meets the needs of Indigenous students in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
Informative and engaging, Walking in the Good Way / Ioterihwakwaríhshion Tsi Íhse is a vital resource for the social work classroom.
