Nelson - The Family Dynamic: Canadian Perspectives provides a comprehensive, down-to-earth, overview of the constellations of family forms in Canada in the twenty-first century. It broadens students’ understanding of the pluralism of family forms in Canada by including lived experiences in the form of first-person narratives at the beginning of every chapter and real case studies at the end of each chapter--helping future human service workers, social workers, early childhood educators, child and youth care workers, and sociologists understand the wide range of family issues with which they will come into contact. Uniquely, this text paints a vivid picture of family life in this moment in time through comprehensible, straightforward, conversational language that captures students’ imaginations as they explore family forms beyond their own.
