Summary, etc.:
"This is the first book to document emerging practice in Aboriginal communities and describe child protection practice from the point of view of both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal social workers. Those working in child welfare or contemplating a career in child protection will find the book an insightful analysis of current practice thinking and experience. Aboriginal people with an interest in health and human services, as well as social work students, child welfare workers and administrators, and health, education, and human service professionals will find it particularly itself."--Jacket.
