Nancy Rolock, PhD, the Henry L. Zucker Associate Professor in Social Work Practice and associate dean for research and training, co-edited a child welfare book that was released this week: Introduction to Child Welfare: Building a Culturally Responsive, Multisystemic, Evidence-Based Approach.
The book aims to help future and current child welfare professionals cultivate a practice that employs an intersectional approach and embraces the concept of cultural humility. It covers various populations involved in child welfare, including domestic children of color, native peoples, immigrant children and families, victims of human trafficking, and LGBTQIA youth. It is an ideal text for future and current child welfare professionals who wish to improve their personal practice.
Rolock's co-editors are:
- Michele Hanna, PhD, associate professor at the Graduate School of Social Work at the University of Denver;
- Ruth McRoy, PhD, the Ruby Lee Piester Centennial Professor Emerita at the University of Texas at Austin School of Social Work and the Donahue and DiFelice Endowed Professor Emerita at Boston College School of Social Work;
