It summarizes the unique circumstances of Asian/Pacific Islander, Latino, South Asian, African, and Middle Eastern immigrant and refugee populations and the available social service systems, including child welfare, juvenile justice, education, health, and mental health care. Each chapter features key terms, study questions, and resource lists, and the book meets many Council on Social Work Education (EPAS) competencies. The text addresses the policy landscape affecting immigrant and refugee children in the United States, and a final section examines current and future approaches to advocacy.
