This new edition has been revised and updated to include the very latest research in child care, new material on refugees and asylum seekers, discussion of work–family issues, and an even more comprehensive treatment of the effects of the Stolen generation and other national and state interventions. With authors from a wide variety of fields, ranging from social work, developmental psychology and law, to sociology and social policy, the book provides a comprehensive explanation of the complicated factors that influence a child’s development.
