Modern Child Welfare and the Foster Care System by Doren Cook, LISW-S
Doren will give 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 kindship 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.
We will conduct this service virtually via Zoom. If you’d like to join us on Sunday, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you a link for our online Sunday Service.
