Description
"In this guide, I share knowledge relevant to two target populations: (a) 24 parents desiring to raise healthy, strong and responsible male children and youth; and (b) community workers and other leaders working with abusive and abused First Nations males. I draw on my formal education and what I learned nonformally and informally to be successful in my work as a probation officer, parole officer, social worker, program planner, community leader, manager, postsecondary educator, son, brother, father, uncle and trusted friend" (Warrior-Caregivers : Understanding the Challenges and Healing of First Nations Men : A Guide Prepared for the Aboriginal Healing Foundation, pgs. 23-24).
