The introductory chapter for The Handbook of Child Well-Being sets forth major issues and areas of concern in understanding child well-being and outlines the structure of the book. This multi-volume compendium on child well-being takes as its starting point that child well-being is best understood within a multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary framework, encompassing a wide range of approaches and contexts. Child well-being is multifaceted in its conceptualizations, topic areas, policy implications, contexts, expressions, and the myriad of components that comprise the well-being of children. The book reflects broad geographic and global interest in child well-being with chapters representing nations and cultures around the world.
