3. Résumé


« Children who receive child welfare services are a vulnerable group, and their numbers are growing. All who care about them need to be fully informed about indicators of success and failure and best practices. This second edition of Child Welfare highlights major developments in child welfare and shows how these inform directions taken in research, policy, and practice. Included are new sections on Indigenous issues and best practices and several chapters that review efforts to increase supports for families in need. Contributions from new and international authors illustrate the endemic nature of child welfare challenges and how we can learn from them. Closing chapters within each section summarize key theorical and practical issues along with recommendations to improve research, policy, and practice in child welfare. » (quatrième de couverture)
