School-based practice with children and youth experiencing homelessness

School-based practice with children and youth
Oxford University Press USA
James Canfield

Schools are facing increasing numbers of homeless students and school social workers and other related professionals are often at the front line of addressing the negative impact homelessness brings to individual students and the school overall. School social workers and other school-based personnel must contend with a myriad of policies and other factors related to homelessness to help students obtain an education. This American text is one of the first to focus on this topic in the context of social work practice. This book guides practitioners through the conceptualisation of homelessness, how experiencing homelessness impacts the children social workers serve, the policies that govern them, and finally a practice perspective.
