    Reviews

    Timely and thorough.

    Fernando Chang-Muy, coeditor of Social Work with Immigrants and Refugees: Legal Issues, Clinical Skills, and Advocacy:
    Immigrant and Refugee Children and Families is an up-to-date overview of the law, key populations, and specific challenges facing immigrants and refugees. The book raises awareness of legal issues, key demographic groups in the United States, and challenges of life that refugees face, such as healthcare, mental health, and education.

    Robert Ortega, University of Michigan School of Social Work:
    An exceptional primer for the reader who is new to this topic, Immigrant and Refugee Children and Families also puts in one place a respectful and comprehensive compendium of critical issues that will push the thinking of advanced readers.
