Wednesday May 5, 2021 at 1 PM ET | 12 PM CT Round Table: A Shift in Perspective: A Universal Approach to Child Protection
Federal legislative changes, state initiated reform efforts, and numerous philanthropic initiatives offer important learning opportunities to dismantle the long standing imbalance within the current child welfare system between the important values of child safety, healthy child development and parental autonomy. A key hallmark of these efforts is rethinking how and when parents are offered assistance. Public child welfare needs to be viewed as an alternative intervention within a broad system of family support. This roundtable will discuss the conceptual and organizational changes needed to reduce the need for mandated interventions and child placement by optimizing more consistent and integrated public child welfare-community prevention partnerships.
