Reviews

"This is a timely book as many child welfare agencies are beginning the journey of implementing an anti-oppressive framework into practice. With several chapters by Indigenous scholars, the plight of our children remains in the spotlight. An underlying message in this book is that if the challenges for Indigenous child welfare can be properly addressed, then those of all other marginalized populations will follow."
"My students and I have found this text to be of particular importance because it has tremendous applicability to the field work and practicum experiences of Indigenous and non-Indigenous students who will one day work with Indigenous populations who are involved with the child welfare systems of this country."
"Using anti-racist and anti-oppressive frameworks as guides, this book provides several strategies that if implemented would address the systemic and structural problems that plague child welfare practice."
