- "Canada has among the highest rate of children in foster care in the developed world--a national tragedy that has its roots in poverty, residential schooling, and other forms of colonialism. Tackling the "wicked" and intransigent problems encountered by social workers, educators, health care workers, and others, Transforming Child Welfare examines systemic issues within the child welfare system, including child abuse, neglect, and FASD. Reflecting on previous strengths, and integrating research and practice, the contributors to this volume provide professionals with best practice solutions that can be applied in different contexts."--
