This volume provides a compelling case for the extension of child and youth care work to the families of clients. Enriched with case exemplars from different cultures, it explores the imperatives for a broader focus, the similarities and the differences with traditional child-focused work, and the unique skills, perspectives and values that child and youth care workers bring with them.

The centrality of the family can often be overlooked in some forms of Child and Youth Care work.This collection explores the many dimensions of family work from a child and youth care perspective, accessibly and with acute insight. It should be priority reading for those working with families, and perhaps those who are not!
