Family & Childhood Studies
Dutton’s rethinking of the fundamentals of intimate partner violence is essential reading for psychologists, policy makers, and those dealing with the sociology of social science, the relationship of psychology to law, and explanations of adverse behaviour.
The authors show how an innovative program – an unexpected partnership between an Aboriginal tribal council and the University of Victoria’s School of Child and Youth Care – has strengthened community capacity to design and deliver culturally appropriate programs to support young children’s development.
Contributors contemplate the evolution of child protection policy and practice in BC, addressing political influences on structural arrangements, cultural traditions of First Nations clients, and establishing community control over services.
