This is the third book in an exciting series of child welfare books that features voices from the prairies. Child welfare is ultimately about the well-being of vulnerable children and families, and this book challenges us to re-examine -- and sometimes to reconstruct -- the core values of our profession and the methods we use. This book urges us to awaken our own spirits to uncover the truth of our motives, and to move forward in ways that honour the values and experiences of vulnerable children and families.
