Loiselle, Elicia; de Finney, Sandrina; Khanna, Nishad; Corcoran, Rebecca – Child & Youth Services, 2012
Like many others seeking to make room for alternative voices in the narrow canon of CYC theory and practice, our work is steeped in theoretical and activist perspectives on colonialism, neoliberalism, normativity, social power, and social change. This critical, multidisciplinary lens is too often cast outside the realm of authentic CYC. In this…
