Child and Youth Care Across Sectors, Vol. 1
Volume 1: Canadian Perspectives
A pivotal textbook in the field, this comprehensive collection is the first of two volumes that cross-examine all active child and youth care sectors across the human services. Co-editors Kiaras Gharabaghi and Grant Charles bring together world-renowned professionals, academics, and researchers to address the past, present, and future state of child and youth care. Guiding students through the exploration of a growing field, this text examines practice in a range of service sectors including hospitals, healthcare, foster homes, family homes, schools, policy settings, and services that support Indigenous, Northern, Quebecois, immigrant, and LGBTQ+ communities. With a strong foundation in Canadian scholarship, this text also includes perspectives from the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, and South Africa.
Chapters contain pedagogical tools such as introductions, case examples, practical applications, conclusions, and reference lists to encourage student engagement. International and Canadian students, scholars, and practitioners in child and youth care will benefit from this extensive and timely resource.
