Description

Passion for Action in Child and Family Services: Voices from the Prairies offers a fresh perspective on contemporary issues in child and family services in Canada. These authors passionately share their experiences with new and emerging policies, programs, and initiatives--all of which hold promise for effectively meeting the needs of at-risk children, youth, and families. Grounded in practice and arising out of the unique Prairie context, this book offers both information and inspiration for policy makers, practitioners, researchers, and students interested in child and family services.
