The Center for Advanced Studies in Child Welfare is pleased to announce our 19th Annual Spring Child Welfare Conference.

Criminal Justice Involvement of Families in Child Protection: Impact and Implications

Families that become involved with the child welfare system face many challenges. Involvement with the criminal justice system, whether past or present, creates additional barriers for child welfare involved families. In understanding the vast complexities of their lives, it is important to emphasize how greatly families are impacted by intersectional involvement with both of these systems. As child welfare professionals work to support families and to address the every day challenges they face, this conference aims to ignite a discussion around how we better serve families at the intersection of these two systems on both a local and national level.
