Child Welfare Speaker Series: When Families Face Medically-Based Child Abuse Claims

Starr Foundation Hall, Room UL102, University Center

General Public 

The January Child Welfare Speaker Series event will explore the links between the child welfare and health care systems. What are the particular challenges faced by families navigating medically-based child abuse claims? Our presenter, Diane L. Redleaf, is the founder of the Chicago-based Family Defense Center and co-chairs United Family Advocates, a bi-partisan federal child welfare reform policy network. She will share insights from her new book, They Took the Kids Last Night: How the Child Protection System Puts Families at Risk, which documents how even the most well-meaning parents can end up on the wrong side of a child abuse allegation when their child has an injury or medical condition that gets misinterpreted.

Moderator:

  • Diane L. Redleaf, author, founder of the Family Defense Center, and co-chairs United Family Advocates

Panelists

  • Carolyn Kubitschek, child protection civil rights lawyer, New York City

  • Clara Presler, staff attorney, Bronx Defenders
