Valuing the Field: Child Welfare in an International Context

Callahan, M.; Hessle, S.; Strega, S. (Editors). Ashgate Publishing Co., Burlington, VT. 2000. 270 pp. $69.95. Hardcover.

From 1996 to 2000, the Canadian Government and the European Commission jointly funded a project to exchange students seeking degrees in child welfare practice between three countries in Europe and three Canadian provinces. The purpose of the Child Abuse, Protection and Welfare project was to expand understanding about children, families, and child welfare practice by immersing students in unfamiliar countries and cultures. By struggling to learn about other ways of working, communicating, and thinking about child welfare, they reflected on their own way of working at home. This monograph consists of papers presented at two conferences sponsored by the project: Valuing the Field, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, held in May 1998; and Building a Community Around Children and Families, Stockholm, Sweden, October 1998.
