Product description


Child and Youth Care provides a new vision for child and youth care … Educators, practitioners, researchers, and policy makers will find this valuable resource to be on the leading edge of what we desperately need in order to better respond to the needs of the [people] we work with. -- Marie L. Hoskins, Professor, School of Child and Youth Care, University of Victoria

Staking out new theoretical frameworks and challenging mainstream thinking in the field of child and youth care, this book constitutes a timely intervention and much-needed resource for both practitioners and scholars in the field.

-- Hans Skott-Myhre, author of Youth and Subculture: Creating New Spaces for Radical Youth Work

This book clearly reflects a professional “coming of age” [and] makes a strong case for developing a unique professional paradigm that gives voice to the rich variety of issues, contexts, and perspectives that practitioners encounter.

-- Ted Dunlop, Director, School of Child and Youth Care, Ryerson University

Book Description

This innovative collection signals a new direction for child and youth care by calling into question the field’s most deeply held assumptions about knowledge, power, and practice.
