Summary/Review: "Immigrant Youth in Canada is a core resource to help university and college students in social work and the human services to gain a better understanding of the complexities, challenges, and opportunities of the immigrant youth experience in Canada. Taking a strengths-based approach, 35 Canadian researchers and practitioners who study and work with immigrant youth offer strategies to respond to the challenges immigrant youth face while exploring ways to recognize the assets these youth bring to Canadian society. Section I sets the context by providing students with foundational facts, figures, vocabulary, and theoretical approaches. Section II focuses on key agents of socialization of immigrant youth, recognizing that youth do not develop in isolation but in relation to home, school, and community. Section III reflects on issues that touch the daily lives of immigrant youth across Canada, including those related to transitioning to the labour market; shaping positive ethnic and gendered identities; supporting sexual minority youth; developing exit strategies for youth involved in criminal gangs; and supporting the unique mental health and developmental needs of youth who are new to Canada."--
