Child Welfare: An Africentric Perspective
Joyce Everett, Sandra Stukes Chipungu, Bogart R. Leashore
Rutgers University Press, 1991 - 325 pagine
Child Welfare, twenty-one educators call attention to racial disparities in the child welfare system by demonstrating how practices that are successful for white children are often not similarly successful for African American children. Moreover, contributors insist that policymakers and care providers look at African American family life and child development from a culturally-based Africentric perspective. Such a perspective, the book argues, can serve as a catalyst for creativity and innovation in the formulation of policies and practices aimed at improving the welfare of African American children.
