About this series
In recent years, many countries have experienced significant influxes of immigrants from around the globe with Canada and the United States currently having the second and third highest immigrant population growth. Thus, researchers as well as social policymakers and educators have acknowledged the importance that culture and acculturation play in the dynamics of families and individual development. This shift in research agendas has led to an overall reassessment of families.Many areas of family dynamics and child development in the context of immigration still remain fairly uncharted. Currently, no book series has delineated the field of immigration and families with a comprehensive and multi-disciplinary perspective that includes theory, research, and social policy. The Immigrant Children and Families Series taps into various aspects of immigrant families from a multi-disciplinary and multi-methodological approach. The books highlight positive child development, parent-child relationships, and other factors that affect the dynamics of the family. Also, the series aims to explore conceptual frameworks and methodological strategies that have been reconfigured to address the cultural relevance and nuances within immigrant families. This comprehensive series features leading scholars and aims to advance the field on families and immigration for researchers as well as social service providers and social policymakers.
