Ep. 71: Child Welfare and the Foster Care System

Harmony member Doren Cook gives a brief explanation of what events and policies shaped child welfare law and how well it’s serving at-risk children. Do JFS social workers and foster parents deserve to be vilified as they often are, or should they be considered heroes? She will also discuss her experience as a mental health provider for children in foster and kinship care and who are at-risk of becoming so. She will then bring it back to UU values and how we can assist at-risk children to build resiliency and build a support system.
