Professional Child and Youth Care, Second Edition

Professional Child and Youth Care provides a comprehensive analysis of the child and youth care field in Canada. The first edition, published in 1987, developed an inclusive model of the broad field of child and youth care, which has since been adapted by educators, practitioners, and researchers across North America. Now this widely used text has been revised and expanded to include developments that have occurred in the field in the last decade. All the chapters have been updated, and two new chapters on rehabilitation and recreation have been added.
