“With this collection of valuable, stimulating, and visionary chapters, it becomes clear that CYC is a ‘profession on the move.’ The reflection on problems, tasks, and practices creates the image of a modern, self-confident profession in transition.… CYC in Canada is proving to be a role model in the global network of innovative CYC and a signpost for all professions that care about young people.”
—Dr. Christoph Steinebach, Professor, Director of the School of Applied Psychology, Zurich University of Applied Sciences

“This collection of chapters provides students with an eclectic look at Canadian child and youth care practice. Written from the unique perspectives of child and youth care professionals and educators, students are offered a look at varying areas of practice to assemble knowledge from.”
—Michelle Briegel, Department of Child Studies and Social Work, Mount Royal University
