Child and Youth Care across Sectors, Volume 2
Child and Youth Care across Sectors aims to reflect the changing field by capturing a diverse array of themes and issues through an inclusive framework. In Volume 2, the contributors continue the discussion on sectors and contexts of child and youth care, with an emphasis on giving space and voice to different ways of thinking about and describing the field. Focusing on acknowledging and confronting the complex issues within child and youth care, this new volume includes groundbreaking chapters on pertinent topics from homelessness to immigration, antiracism, African-centred praxis, and Indigenous ways of being. Expanding from the first volume, this text explores additional settings of child and youth care, including hospitals, schools, day treatment programs, and the complicated youth criminal justice sector.
As the field of child and youth care continues to evolve, this timely and thought-provoking text will be vital for students, scholars, and practitioners in child and youth care, in Canada and abroad.
- incorporates discussions on Canada’s northern provinces and territories, specifically Labrador and Nunavut, in child and youth care contexts and regions typically neglected in the field
