Summary
"Working with Immigrants and Refugees examines the issues and processes that help, hinder, or obstruct the settlement experiences of newcomers to Canada. This contributed volume also explores how "being new" interacts with other interlocking oppressions such as race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability, and language difficulties. Part I provides the theoretical, policy, and practical issues for human services practice with immigrants and refugees in the Canadian context. Part II highlights three major challenges faced by most immigrants and refugees: employment, health, and housing. Part III uses an intersectional perspective to examine the oppressive experiences of different groups of newcomers. The text gives critical analysis of challenges and issues while also offering practical suggestions and insights with the overall goal of preparing social work and human service students and practitioners for work with immigrants and refugees."--
