Featured Speaker Sarah Anne Font
Associate Professor of Sociology and Public Policy at Penn State University
Font is an associate professor of sociology and public policy at Penn State University. Her research assesses the outcomes of children who experience abuse and neglect and the efficacy of the child welfare system in preventing revictimization and adverse health and developmental outcomes. Recent research projects focus on characterizing the effects of foster care and permanency on short and long-term child wellbeing.
In this four-part webinar series, policy researcher and writer, Naomi Schaefer Riley, will interview leading practitioners and policymakers in the fields of youth services and Foster Care to help us better understand the challenges and opportunities in these crucial services. Each of these webinars will be based on Riley's research for her latest book, No Way to Treat a Child: How the Foster Care System, Family Courts, and Racial Activists Are Destroying Young Lives.
Session 1: What Is Child Maltreatment and How Should the Government Respond to It?
Session 2: How Do Family Courts Determine Child Maltreatment and Decide on Foster Care?
