Each chapter contains rich case examples wherein the respective authors present teaching points designed to further the reader’s comprehension of knowledge for practice.  Our book also contains new material on white ethnics, working with torture victims, issues surrounding fairness and equity in the child welfare system, and administrative, policy practices and their interface with multicultural dynamics in services to children, youth and families.
