Children's Rights and Social Work

Hanita Kosher, Asher Ben-Arieh, Yael Hendelsman

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This book provides a conceptual framework for children's rights as well as specific strategies and opportunities for social workers to apply in their work. It guides social work professionals and students through the history of children's rights. It also includes a call for a paradigm shift from a focus on the right to nurturance to the right to self-determination, as well as a contrasting look at children's rights in the West versus the rest of the world.
