Overview

Community Approaches to Child Welfare: International Perspectives

This book is written by both practitioners and academics to explore ways in which community based, preventative approaches to child welfare can be used to support families experiencing behavioral problems with children or undergoing difficulties in raising them. Specific practice examples developed in Britian, Canada and Sweeden provide an international dimension to this book.

The book reveals how working with families from a community perspective which is centered in acknowledging children's rights and parental rights may challenge professionals in ways that they find uncomfortable. Nevertheless, the book concludes that practice can more effectively serve children's interests if parents and workers work in partnership with each other.
